I was guest preacher tonight at a Holy Week service in Lanark. I spent some time talking about Mary of Bethany who anointed Jesus with oil and with love and also about Judas who criticised her for it, then betrayed Jesus. I guess there is a Mary and a Judas in us all. Thankfully God’s grace both accepts our praise and forgives our weakness. (the sermon is here)
After the service we walked the labyrinth in the hall. It was a beautiful and soul searching experience and I’m so glad I had the chance to make the pilgrimage. There are a few more photos on flikr.
