The Gospel writer Mark uses the same word for Jesus resurrection that he uses when he raises Peter's mother-in-law up from illness.
... and so tomorrow morning (11am), after I have prayed at 4 Corners Festival radio service on BBC Radio Ulster, I will be looking at how we breathe resurrection into our own souls, our homes, our Churches and our country. We will be on a scary dark road to Soroti and looking at how sometimes home comes to meet us as we journey home. Jonny Fitch will sing an appropriate Fitch/Stockman composition. Chris Blake will lead us sensitively through worship.
In the evening (7.30... NOTE 7.30) Fitzroy is on tour at Skainos Centre on the Newtownards Road for the 4 Corners Festival event Blessed Are The Peacemakers. I will be contributing my own thoughts on how the Church hasn't and should be involved in peacemaking. Also speaking will be Rev Dr Heather Morris, Fr Brian Lennon and Karen Sethuraman. Gladys Ganiel will chair and keep us focused. Expect a night of critique and inspiration. Jonny Fitch will add some songs!
