In the face of death, live humanly. In the middle of chaos, celebrate the Word. Amidst Babel…speak the truth. Confront the noise and verbiage and falsehood of death with the truth and potency and efficacy of the Word of God. Know the Word, teach the Word, nurture the Word, preach the Word, defend the Word, incarnate the Word, do the Word, live the Word. And more than that, in the word of God, expose death and all death’s works and wiles, rebuke lies, cast out demons, exorcise, cleanse the possessed, raise those who are dead in mind and conscience.
An Ethic for Christians and and Other Aliens in a Strange Land p143
Now we’re talking! A soothing and stirring word in the clamour and fear of an Irish Advent.
