Preacher as commentator

We all know that this has been a week of contrasts, but somehow the image below brings them all together. Here, on the front page of a weekly round-up newspaper, we see the world as it has been this week:

Its not that we necessarily need to comment on these stories specifically. Rather, this mixed-up place is the world we have inhabited during the past week, and whose lingering affects we bring with us to worship.

Prayers go out to every preacher who will try to make ‘God-sense’ of all this today. God speed to you!
