The secret of the grain that falls
An extract from the Dean's sermon for Sunday, 2 September 2018:
“Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” (John 12:24–25 NRSV)
This saying happens to be one of my favourite biblical texts. It has always touched me profoundly.
These words take us deep into the mystery of the truth that Jesus lived, and the truth that we are called to live as well.
