I just finished the production on my very first digital ”sermon-aid”. Consequently, I would categorise it as a proto-type. The sermon itself is a proto-kerygma (first-sermon), and not included here. Having never delivered a ”proper” sermon, the most challenging aspect for me, was delivering it.
The basic premise is:
Labels hinder our understanding of each other. This is because they bind us to the opinion others have of us. The popular term ”doubting Thomas” is a label which hinders our theological understanding of doubt and Jesus the Christ (John 20). Therefore all labels must be critiqued or rejected. The biblical standard is clear ‘you are more than what has been defined for you by society’ (James Cone, 1975 ‘God of the oppressed’)

A visual reflection on a Lenten Lament:
This bread was made from a RiverCottage recipe by my beautiful daughters. I used instagram, cartoonize.net and the standard photo editor that came with windows 7.
It looked so good we decided to use it as a display, in order to photograph it for our Lenten reflection.
