OPEN LETTER TO 4 CORNERS FESTIVAL GOERS (2020)
FOR CAITLIN'S BIRTHDAY - A POEM I WROTE WHILE JANICE WAS IN LABOUR

PRAYER LESSON FROM WEST WING... AND MORE - TOMORROW IN FITZROY 23.2.2020

WW Jed C2

Tomorrow morning (11am) in Fitzroy and I will do what I have been threatening for many years. I am going to preach on the television series West Wing's two part episode Two Cathedrals. It is a remarkable piece of television drama where the President, Jed Bartlett, closes a Cathedral to have a rage at God about all kinds of injustices that he feels God has been sending towards him. On the other end of this encounter with God a storm creeps up the East Coast of America and Bartlett's senses something extra-ordinary in such an event at such a time and he finally hears God speak.

As we learn How To Pray during Lent with the help of Pete Greig's book of that name, I thought it would be a good opportunity to self indulge with this favourite spiritual television moment. It will be rooted in Psalm 13 in which we hear David having a Jed Bartlett episode. 

Seemingly unconnected, apparently by chance... the same How Long refrain from Psalm 13 will be included in our worship as we do Psalm 40 as co-written between Bono and King David!

In the evening (7pm) our How to Read the Bible series goes on. This week Michael Fitch will take a look at the context of the book of Daniel.
