  • Dear Friends

    Have you ever hidden something and hoped it would go away? You might have done it unintentionally, telling yourself that you were simply filing it so that you could deal with it later. We do it with inconvenient truth as well. We know what is true but to face up to the truth would make life difficult so it is conveniently filed to be acted on at a later date.

    The religious authorities in first century Palestine thought that they had done that with the inconvenience of the preacher from Galilee. The civil authorities were confident in their own worldview to quickly dispatch the rabble-rouser who talked about a kingdom of love where he was King. You see execution is often used when you want to suppress the truth. If you stamp on it hard enough, if you shout loud enough then you can silence it.

    The trouble is that the truth often comes back to haunt us. It certainly did for those who crucified the one who called himself the truth. Three days later, bearing the scars of love and whispering words of truth, he was back. The murmur of truth exploded into the bold proclamation that He was Alive.

    I wonder if this Easter, rather than filing it in the back of your mind to think about when you have time, you will look seriously at the Christian claim that God became human, loved us so much that he died for us and then rose again to give us eternal life.

    God bless

    Mike Gilbert, Rector of Baslow
