The content of this post may not necessarily reflect the policies, theologies or opinions of St Peter's Anglican Church, Palmerston North.
It is quite clear from the opening words of Mark 13:1-8 that the Christianity was birthed in troubled times. If we are to unpack this narrative in search of a meaning for today, we run the very real risk of getting bogged down in conflicts that have very little to do with the faith of the nascent church.
There are three scenes to engage in my response this morning.
In order, they will be:
The impending destruction of the temple
2 The bombing of Dresden
3 And finally, the unrest in our response to covid.
