26th May 2017 The suicide terrorist attack in Manchester. As we all grapple with the realisation and shock of what has happened in Manchester we should once again turn to meditating on Jesus' own death, where the cycle of violence is stopped and ended. Not only did he refuse to retaliate, or return evil for evil, but he suffered, and forgave and prayed for those who were killing him. This is our God. This is the place where sin is propitiated and completely forgiven, where enemies are united in peace, where broken families are brought together again, where suffering is not taken away but transformed. The very way that Jesus died exposed the essential essence of the evil powers of this world. If it wasn't for the cross I'm not sure I could believe in God. We are the people of the Cross. Paul's letter to the Roman Church focusses on the atoning work of Christ.
