Rev. Karen Bowles, Lent 1, Ashes and Assurance
Genesis 9:8-17, Mark 1:9-15
All religious language is by necessity metaphorical or allegorical. I didn’t say this though I wish I had – but I believe it. And it is not metaphor because it describes things are too amazing to believe – too ‘out there’ to be fact, but because it describes things that are not understandable through words but are only made evident through the emotions the words invoke -or the experiences that lead us to nod with intuitive knowing when we hear the words. Many of you know these metaphors – comparisons using like or as: God’s love is like a hen gathering her chick under her wings, God’s love is like a branch and we are the vines, God’s love is like a potter and and we are the clay.
