Today we investigate the parable of the talents.
All may not be as it seems!
Who’s the good guy in the story? Who’s the bad guy?
You might be in for a shock
What do you make of this parable in light of what you’ve heard this morning?
Does it tun your world ‘upside down?’
Think of people today who are heroes, in the way the third retainer in the parable was; that is, heroes who don’t attract a large following.
Try as best you can to re-enter that moment in time, not to understand it or rationalise it, but rather to just feel it and re-experience it.
For those struggling with loneliness and depression, particularly brought on by the pandemic.
For those who make a difference in the world, without recognition or reward.
Which heroes did you call to mind in the Time for Reflection?
How could you acknowledge and thank them for what they do?
