Rev it up.
Another brilliant episode of Rev last night, I thought.
Last week's episode prompted my husband's bold confession.
This week's episode made me realise how possibly completely annoying I am. I have been suspecting for quite a while that this is a possibility and I am trying to do something about it.
I can not play the piano but I do so have those 'let me colour-co-ordinate the vestry' tendencies. It was frightening.
Ministry requires this kind of 'hiding your light under a bushel thing,' which can come as a bit of a shock, pretending to be more stupid than you actually are, sending yourself up frequently and over-asserting an uncertainty about Jesus, the gospel and hearing from God than those more confident, charismatic, evangelical expressions of the faith have taught you.
Adam's vulnerability in the face of Abi's confidence was cleverly demonstrated and we can't help loving Adam. I am not sure how we felt about Abi and I am interested to know what you thought.
Did she fail to reveal vulnerability?
Did she think she knew better than her training incumbent?
She was a little self-unaware, yes?
She was idealistic - certainly, imagining her own competencies would not be a problem but would be encouraged.
The show seems to be very cleverly researched and accurate to life as we know it in the Church of England. It gave me lots to think about.
Ordained Anglican. Thinking out loud about church.
