Which was good when Chris Tomlin's Hark the Herald Angels brought tears to my eyes. I had another horrendous day in our Very Challenging School on Friday. It's hard to model patience and virtue when you've been sworn at constantly and listened to less. I'm not very good at it.
So when it came to "pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus our Emmanual" I just lost it. Christ by highest heaven adored decided to walk amongst people whom he knew would spit at him and humiliate him and torture him to death. Well, if Jesus decides not only that it's worth it, but is pleased so to do?
This morning, obviously Mothers Day, is also the Mothers Union service in church and we had the amazing Barbardo's project manager Claire Humphries this morning talking about work in difficult areas to persuade young people and families that education is worthwhile. You can see my weekend's theme emerging!
We had chosen Micah 6:6-8 as the theme of the talk. What does the Lord require? Act justly, love mercy, live humbly. In the desert.
