I very rarely tweet about talks I've heard - not because they haven't been good necessarily, but because I usually think even the better ones tend not to travel well (usually because they are well embedded into their contexts). But that's another story. Last Sunday was different. Judge David Turner was speaking as part of All Souls' short series on flashpoint issues in next week's General Election. His topic was Immigration.
No one expected it.Few believed it. Even when they had it on good authority. Even when they'd been forewarned and forearmed (see Mark 8:31; 9:30-32; 10:32-34). But still it didn't sink in. Not immediately. And it wouldn't, would it. After all, dead men simply don't rise. They just DON'T. OK?
