Imagining the Lectionary: Advent conundrum (Advent 2C)

Reflection accompanying image “No way in or Out

The photograph presents a conundrum. The room in the tower offers a view over the boundary
wall which cannot be seen by those at ground level. The access door is set well above head
height and offers a tantalising glimpse of the space within and the outlook beyond. But there is
no way of reaching it. Whatever steps were once in place are long gone. And this is a
conundrum that no one seems in a hurry to resolve.

The word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness....  (Luke3:2-6)

God is not content for us to remain hemmed in behind the boundary walls of the way things are
and how we like them to be. God always wants to expand our vision and our horizons by
placing us in a viewpoint where the Kingdom of Love opens up before our eyes. God's word
has the power to raise us up to see over the wall of our limitations and to dispel all the
negativity of what cannot be, which so inhibits our imaginations, releasing us into the far
reaching possibility of all that could be.
