Wow Laurence, very thought provoking, i was leading a meditation on Friday looking at"who do you say I am" a lot of good stuff came from the evening!

A number see Jesus and the Rock, another said he was the key to life which I thought was an intresting concept.

mjmkvbThanks for that. I came up with this piece while helping with the SCM stall at Greenbelt festival this year. While musing on some of the ideas that were floating around, about identity and suchlike, it seemed like a helpful way to think through some Christological stuff, crystallised by reading this book recently. As I explained to some others, it might well be something like a safe way to sneak in all sorts of images that I wouldn't like to openly expose myself by broaching otherwise - that's crazy, outlandish, or playful - as well as to include some more disreputable images, as an exercise in holding a mirror to our times. Not just the ones that're easy common currency, like the rock - as helpful as they may be, in themselves. It's notable that we often assume what we've encountered to be definite, yet they're often very mixed when placed alongside each other in context.

What a coincidence. I wouldn't mind hearing more from that evening, should you find the time to say.

hehe, thanks (and ta also to Donna for the compliment)...I think I had cartoons and graphic novels, in my head at the time. I mean we have iconic explorations of what it means to be human in films and comics and sci fi novels, what would happen if we brought the stories of Jesus jumbled into them? Eternal/new life?

I will get back to you about the evening meeting soon, just finishing writting my placement report, then I'll be able to write something.
