Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene let go and what she found in the garden into which she fell was God. Faith is about letting go – letting go of our image of God, letting go of our image of ourselves. These are limitations. The gift is in the letting go. We can’t do that with our own thoughts or our own actions but simply through God’s grace. We’re not brought deep into God in our heads by sermons or doctrines – we’re brought deep into God by our lives, our circumstances…if we  let those circumstances speak. Be open and be opened. Live honestly. Live true. It is in the space of letting go of what we think we know that we find God – closer to us, always, than our own breath.

So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! (St Paul – 2 Corinthians 5.17)
