Services this week
On Sunday 18th, our gospel reading (Luke 12:49-56) gives us a lens to both look back to the Peterloo Massacre (200th anniversary on Friday 16th) and present protests and challenges to the status quo. Jesus says now as then ' Frauds, you know how to tell a change in the weather, so don't tell me you can't tell a change in the season, the God-season we are in right now.'
