It is all happening

To be honest, I have little to say today. What is worth thinking about are some comments I have just posted to the previous post, comments which illuminate the possibilities when we think theologically with theo-logic rather than theologically with today's-thinking-logic.

But, if it interests you, today has possibilities to reflect on tomorrow: a training day followed by an ordination of four deacons who will be priested.

There is a cricket test starting.

A quick glimpse of a headline suggests Trump cannot get the new health care bill over the line.

See you soon!

You missed that today is the Feast of the Annunciation - its on your calendar and presents a teaching opportunity

But it is all but forgotten in a world where "Easter" eggs and hot cross buns have been displayed on super market shelves since January and the right to buy potting mix on Good Friday is a fait accompli

Hi Andrei
Fair catch!
It was indeed the Feast of the Annunciation and we had been reminded of that in advertising for the Ordination Service so I am without excuse ...

You know Peter we live in a time where we have all sorts of "days" to "raise awareness" of this, that and the other agenda, some discreditable others more worthy

And you wonder how to bring the Gospel to the people, discuss this on this blog

Forgetting, I think, that the Church has been "raising awareness" of important parts of Christ's story for nearly two millennia with its feast days

And the Annunciation with its gospel reading, Luke 1:26-38, and the Magnificat is an opportunity that should not be squandered even if it is introduced as a reminder that it is exactly 9 months until Christmas, and taking it from there.

It is all part of the rhythm of Life in the Church and its richness

Not ALL commentators on ADU missed out on the feast of the Annunciation to Mary on 25 March. I was privileged to preside at the Mass on that Day.
