Extracts from my Palm Sunday Sermon - Keith F. (Nelmes URC)
5th April 2020 (Part 3)
As a point of interest one of the quotes I have used has been adapted from the Talmud (The primary source of Jewish law) I have learnt much from my teachers, but much more from my friends, I think maybe Jesus new this as well, he understood that things had to change an example had to be set, he himself was a teacher but his example is to those in legal authority over the populace.
At the start of the sermon I pointed out the saying from Octavia Hill, she was born in 1838 and died in 1912, the quote was written in 1888, when I first read it I thought how true she was. But my theme today has touched on the voracity of our need for truth in our day to day life. Yes we all want quite, we all want beauty…. We all need space. She carries on to say that unless we have it, we cannot reach that sense of quite in which whispers of better things come to us gently.
