This week has gone well so far. Sorry about the lack of content for a week. I had an excuse: I was seeing friends around the country and also attending a stag do for a couple who are getting married next week (It’s very exciting).
But I got back on sunday and haven’t bothered to post anything new, which for all three of my readers is obviously devastating.
This week I have been having a great time at a local conference about the arts and worship. People far more creative than I have been exploring together how music, drama, art and dance can express the story of God. Yesterday was my favourite: Art.
I’ve posted a drawing I did some time ago here.
This new piece emerges from my reflections on Jesus’ parable of the seeds. There is a great deal of insight contained in that story, but the phrase which caught my eye comes as some sort of a punchline:
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” (Mark 4:9)
Mysterious words. Riddles. What could that mean? Enjoy the picture, post a comment I’d love to hear from all three of you. Oh, and apologies for the poor quality image. I had to use my phone camera.
So, what does Jesus mean? ‘Let he who has ears to hear, let him hear’
