JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

THIRD SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MATTHEW
22nd January 2017

When Jesus inaugurated his public ministry, he made his home base at a crossroads. Capernaum on the Sea of Galilee was a meeting place of Jew and Gentile, a melting-pot of different races and cultures. Through it ran the trade highway known as the Way of the Sea, from Damascus to the Mediterranean. The gospels often refer to Jesus “on the borders” of places, mixing with the marginalised.

He came to a people “who walked in darkness, in the land and shadow of death”. It is not unlike our world today. What will an apparently maverick president of the USA turn out to be? What of the unknown future of a post-Brexit Britain? Will the seemingly endless conflicts in the Middle East ever be fully resolved? The immediate answers of Trump (“get the foreigners out of America”) and Brexit Britain (“give us our country back”) are turning a crossroads society into a series of cul-de-sac nations. The clarion call is not progress but retreat.

In the land and shadow of death “I will fear no evil”, Psalm 23 confidently proclaims. The people who walked in darkness “has seen a great light”, says Isaiah. Jesus walks with us in the shadows of our fear and confusion to be our light and our strength. The light of his word scatters the distorted images of our shadowy vision. His clarion call is: “Repent! Think again. The kingdom of heaven is here, which has no frontiers, no passports, neither rich nor poor, slave nor free; all are welcome. Do you prefer darkness to light? Can you not rise to the challenge of Good News, and be a people of hope, forgiveness, healing and above all, love? If yes, then come, follow me.”

May the Lord bless you.

John
