Comments: English Covenant votes - press reports

The Old Testament is littered with the ruins of failed covenants - and those were initiated by God. It didn't stop God loving the people, or calling them to faithfulness - but it is rather ironic that at passiontide there is this sense that we haven't quite got how costly restoring relationships is. The "covenant" was never going to do it - we have a covenant in Christ, and that has not failed.

Yes, Mark. And that Covenant in Christ, through our Baptism, cannot fail. Our present Lenten and coming Easter devotions constantly re-assure us of the fact that God's Love is always unconditional - not subject to any ability of ours to 'measure up'.

O Love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in Thee.
I give Thee back the life I owe -
that life may fuller, fairer be.
