  1. Excellent! Do you think Pur Modern World has lost touch with ‘symbolism’? Carl Jung wrote a rather insightful book cslled…’Man and his Symbols’.. Fascinating….;)x

      1. I am sure there is still a very strong following of the ‘Symbolic’…though there appears to be growing cynacism in some ‘Western Orientated Societies’.. Britain leans mofre and more to the ‘cynical’…Sadly….;)x

      2. I wonder if some of the leaning towards the ‘spiritual’ (in so many forms, weird and wonderful!) is a way of counterbalancing this?

      3. … although I wonder whether we really do create any ‘new’ myths. Is not the obsession with celebrities, and in an earlier era film stars, and earlier than that, gladiators for instance – a manifestation of wanting people on pedestals, to whom we look up for one reason or another – like heroes and heroines in the old animist myths? People who pit themselves against adversity?

        I guess Jung would say … 🙄

      4. I thought you would spot that….The essence of myth takes on many garbs….persona…we too lightly dismiss the ‘myths’ of/from other cultures, oblivious to the way we dress our own…;)

      5. I note this in the Christian world as well, the desire to put certain people on pedestals and consider them ‘better’ than the rest of us poor mortals … I’m afraid I am always very suspicious of this. As far as I can see, the ground is level at the foot of the Cross!

      6. What C S Lewis inveighed against as the ‘inner ring’ – and how right he was. I have to admit that, when we realised we would be coming home early from Romania (parents’ health) and would be returning to parish life, I refused to consider our previous diocese on this basis … 😉

      7. Thank you! I wonder what would happen if all the people who experience this spoke together … depends on the number of bishops who might (or might not) join … :))

      8. I doubt whether you would find many ‘bishops’ – or people who have insinuated themselves nearer – closer – the ‘Inner Ring’…..Their ‘station’ becomes their ‘raison d’etre….:)

      9. I’m sure you will have had some experience…Once ‘trapped’ getting out can be well-nigh impossible! Not entirely so, though….;)

      10. Being a deacon means I am pretty well off everyone’s radar, unless I choose to put myself on to it … and also means that I can make it up as I go along, which gives me sufficient freedom to do what I think God wants me to do. But how He puts up with us I don’t know!

      1. Feel more rested but in the last hour I’ve had a cold come on, felt a bit nasaly this morning but didn’t have time to worry now it’s come with a vengeance. Still I did pray that it would hold off til I’d finished the lunches :))
