This week’s readings seem to be a strange juxtaposition of two call narratives, that of Abraham and of Matthew. And the Gospel reading for the day, at first reading, seems to contain to unrelated narratives itself, the call of Matthew and the indignation that causes and also the healing of a woman suffering hermorages and of the daughter of the leader of a synagogue. Two calls and two healings. It’s been a puzzle for me all week to work out what the Spirit might be saying to us against a background the largest landwar in Europe in many decades, climate change and a nascent Constitutional crisis.
