Preaching for Spring 2020

Part way through Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus climbs up a mountain, like Moses before him.  The words which come down the mountain with him are a ‘manifesto’ for Christian living.  Between them, these ‘beatitudes’ are a siren call to the followers of Jesus to live lives of radical contrast to those round about them.  If Christians are to ‘be’ at all … they have to be different!
