"Mark’s challenge is to notice those places where women are marginalised, oppressed, and violated, and to take action to bring equality." Revd Dr Simon Woodman
"What if the king in Jesus’ parable isn’t God?
What if his son isn’t Jesus?
What if the first-invited guests aren’t the Jews?
What if the forced-in guests aren’t grateful to be there?
What if the man with the wrong clothes on isn’t a sinner?
What if people have been reading this parable wrong all these years,
because they have been reading it through the lens of a wrong view of God?
What if God isn’t a violent dictator after all?"
- Simon Woodman preaching on the parable of the Wedding Banquet from Matthew 22.1-14, on Sunday 12th March 2023.
