Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, to muse or amuse.

    It might be tempting to ignore that harsh Hypocrisy poster that accompanies this open invitation to express ourselves

    We all fall short of the standards we might set ourselves of course, that is the human condition in a fallen world. There are those who say because we cannot meet the highest standards of morality (that’s in all things not just the sexual aspect that seems to dominate our modern understanding of the word) we should just accommodate our failings.

    Of course Saul Alinsky said that we should use peoples failures to meet the standards they promote to “hang them”. It’s a very effective weapon to do so.

    Christianity understands people are flawed and will screw up no matter how well intentioned and teaches that when you slip acknowledge your failure and pick yourself up and try again harder.

    Anyway it’s Sunday – here are the Antiphons (Psalms or partial Psalms) , the ancient Hymn “Only Begotten Son” and a Litany, a regular part of the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom – during which we put aside our worldly cares and concerns and find healing for our imperfections and flaws – this doesn’t happen instantly it takes your entire life.

    And is there anything more beautiful than a male and female voice raised in Praise? Human Beings are the Lord’s greatest creation despite our flaws.
