In the wake of the demonization of Gunter Grass, how refreshing to read: "And these things may be of real importance when we look at what seem to be the most completely intractable problems of our day. At Easter we cannot help but think about the land that Jesus knew and the city outside whose walls he was crucified. These last months have seen a phase of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians yet again stalling, staggering and delivering little or nothing for those who most need signs of hope. Everything seems to be presented as a zero-sum game. And all who love both the Israeli and the Palestinian communities and long for their security will feel more desperate than ever. A visit to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, will convince you why the state of Israel exists and must go on existing. A visit to any border checkpoint will convince you that the daily harassment and humiliation of Palestinians of all ages and backgrounds cannot be a justifiable or even sustainable price to pay for security. Listening to a rabbi talking about what it is like to witness the gathering up of body parts after a terrorist attack is something that can't be forgotten; neither is listening to a Palestinian whose parent or child has been killed in front of their eyes in a mortar bombing."

Surely, "A Doctor writes" isn't more interesting to Christians than proclaiming the Good News of the Resurrection Gospel?
Yes indeed, as ever, a good prophetic word from the pulpit of Glasgow cathedral - although the Provost must come to realise that the Lord is just as much risen in Morningside as He is in Scotland's second city.
With Rosemary's comment that now brings the score to Resurrection Sermons - 4 Comments on Dr. Glynn's Views - 63
People expect sermons on the resurrection. They do not expect credibility given to views the like of Dr Glynn's. Dog bites man rarely attracts comment either.
