Reflection — October 18th
In C.S. Lewis' The Last Battle the stable was a bad place, dark and smelly. The children (Eustace and Jill) didn’t want to go in. But one young man, a stranger, walked forward through the door, into the unknown beyond. Giving up life outside the stable was the only way to enter life beyond the stable – further up and further in!
Ever living God,
You are before all things and there can never be any after you.
You are the God who alone turns death into glorious new life.
We celebrate your resurrection power,
and yet we cling so tightly to what we cannot save.
Help us to empty our hands
