Easter 6 – What can be seen that's changed in our neighbourhoods and public spaces, as a result of the lockdowns and restrictions brought on by the pandemic? There have been many examples of people taking the initiative to connect with and support each other, with opportunities to stop, listen and learn. Learning comes from patience; teaching comes from knowing; seeing comes from respectfully waiting to understand. While the apostle Paul was in Athens he was invited along to a place where citizens and others spent a lot of time discussing new ideas, and when he was invited to speak he told them about a new way of living that involved giving, caring, and loving our neighbour as we love ourselves. Before long others, too, were spreading that particular good news around the city. Stop, listen and learn.
Acts 17: 15-31
