Sensing the Passion
(based on the book by Kevin Scully)
‘The importance of the senses in the passion of Jesus is vital. They link us to him.
His experiences were complete human experiences. His senses were complete human senses.
His sight was like our sight. His hearing was like our hearing. His touch was like our touch.
His sense of smell was like ours. His taste was like our taste…’
In the springtime of the Church, Christians were well aware that it was important to
engage with the story of Jesus Christ with all their created being, heart, mind and soul,
and the whole of their senses so that the narrative of the Lord’s passion and resurrection
reverberates not just in our minds but in the whole of our being and the whole of our lives.

The Passion and Resurrection of Jesus and the making of peace
2018 is the centenary of the end of the Great War. ‘Peace be with you’ is the greeting
of the Risen Christ to his disciples. St Paul tells us ‘Christ is our peace; he has broken
down the dividing wall between us.’
As we journey through Lent to our celebration of the Passion and Resurrection of the
Lord, we reflect on the suffering and death of Jesus and on the Risen Lord’s Easter
gift of Peace in the light of the end of the Great War and the pursuit of peace
We meditate on the suffering of humanity and the hope of resurrection:
remembrance and peace-making at the end of the Great War-and now.
‘Aftermath’. Siegfried Sassoon and the poetry of remembering
Hedd Wyn, poet of peace. Remembering the war, making the peace
Remembrance: poppies, red …
… and white
At the grave of the unknown soldier : prayer, peace and the hope of resurrection
Every Tuesday at 7.00 p.m. : Lent Group at St Barnabas
York Course: On the Third Day (by Bishop John Pritchard)
The Resurrection is the Big Story that turned a little Jewish protest movement into a
world-transforming religion. And yet by Easter Monday we’ve almost forgotten about it
and are planning our Summer holidays. How can we re-capture the explosive power of the resurrection that ricocheted around the world? How can we live in the glow of the
Resurrection and be an Easter people? How can ‘there and then’ become ‘here and now’?
Have I got news for you?
So what? The implications of the Resurrection
‘Let him Easter in us’
