More rumours, holding the baby ::

Our baby is too big to "hold", she will have her full driver's licence soon. So it was great last night at the Ministry Development Course (in service training / retreat for newish pastors) to be given a baby to hold over coffee and sharing. That's the sort of sharing I like, small cute and with all that potential just bursting out of the eager eyes, hands and mouth that contentedly explore the world. (And when you can only ask for a change of view or position by grizzling too!)

I cannot imagine how anyone can hold a contented baby and fail to catch a "rumour of another world". The complexity, promise... to me it always makes me think "a creature like this has to imply a creator".

I know, I know, Tom (thenewsisgood) will quickly remind me - if he's reading this - that there is also all the gratuitous violence and pain. Though yesterday I hardly needed reminding, an afternoon of sermon prep. reading warcrimes websites (well trying to read, the pictures nearly made me sick) and then my colleague who's running the MDC has a husband just out of intensive care, who sometimes does not even recognise her.

But somehow, at least for me a baby still whispers those rumours...
