Sunday the 18th November is the 2nd Sunday before Advent and we celebrate our Parish Eucharist at 11:00am in in Kirton SS Peter & Paul.
In the Gospel we have Jesus and the disciples coming to Jerusalem and the Temple and looking around. The Temple, at this point was the one begun by Herod the Great and it was not yet finished. The stones were big, 37.5 feet long, 18 feet wide and 12 feet thick, no wonder the disciples were impressed and here is Jesus saying that it will all be destroyed. Jesus goes on to warn the disciples about people leading them astray. Jesus’ message of God’s love is about liberation. That message which we in our generation are called to implement can be costly as it was for those who went before us. Jesus calls us to bring in the Kingdom of God’s peace with justice, God’s kingdom of valuing every human being.
