In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.I have a fondness for the American humorist James Thurber- one of the few writers who can make me laugh out loud. He has a very funny short story called ‘The Macbeth Murder Mystery‘, which first appeared in The New Yorker in 1937, at the height of the craze for whodunnits- detective stories (in The Thurber Carnival Penguin 1965, p83ff).

In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
We have heard a lot of scripture today. We have heard the stories that stand at the beginning and the end of Jesus’ last week in Jerusalem. He have heard of how he was welcomed as a king, but ended up on a cross- the great reversal of fortune that lies at the heart of the drama of Holy Week.
