Lent 4: A door has been opened and a room prepared

APOLOGIES – NEW UPDATED VERSION NOW UPLOADED WHICH NOW WORKS !!

In this fourth podcast of Lent 2012, Vanessa Elston continues this years Moot at St Mary Aldermary Lentern season with a reflection on the title ‘A door has been opened and a room prepared’.

Christian silence seeks an openness to the divine that is personal, in Christ who ‘emptied himself of all but love.’  Self emptying kenotic love is therefore a fulfillment of the true self, which, traditionally, is held to have the capacity to rejoice eternally without losing specific personality.  Moreover, Christianity believes that the world is real and redeemable – and that therefore ‘personality’, as part of that whole, is sustainable.
