Wisdom from 'the Tower"


An extract from a sermon by the Dean on Sunday, 21 June 2019.

Mary’s story is the story of so many women in the church over the past 2000 years.

Drawn to faith. Touched by Jesus. Supporting the mission and encouraging other people. Pushed aside by the men. Written out of the story. Overlooked. Slut shamed if they dare to speak up.

We can do better, and the Magdalene offers us a better path of discipleship.
