Talk at St Bride’s by Dr. Chris Allen
Preamble: From Socialism to Christianity
I have spent a lifetime searching for socialism. It all began when I was 13. I liked ‘alternative’ rock and punk music and, from that, my exposure to radical politics began. The ideas propounded by the bands that I was listening to fell into the categories of socialism and anarchism. They provided me with a way of understanding the world around me. It was 1983. This was Thatcher’s Britain. My father was variously in work, out of work and on strike. Why are good people treated so badly? It made no sense, until I began to listen to music.
Sermon at Open Table, by The Rev Mark Waters, at St Bride’s 21.04.2013
The raising of Tabitha contains strong echoes the story of the raising of Jairus’s daughter by Jesus. The same details in a narrative. The mourners kept outside. The command from the holy man for the dead to person to get up. And the purpose of the story we assume, is to demonstrate that the early church and its leaders, were able to perform the same acts of healing – and raising - as the Master.
Defying death, the ability to reverse the effects of mortality, is something which intrigues us as human beings. It is the ultimate answer to our condition. The subject of countless legends and stories. What all the money on cosmetic surgery and beauty products are also trying to do. To wind back the remorseless effects of time on the human body.
So as a story to set as the main text for a Sunday in the season of Easter I am not really very impressed with the raising of Tabitha. Because for me it’s a story about resuscitation, not a story about resurrection. And there’s a world of difference in between.
Early morning rising,
while men sleep, women rise early,
waking, wondering, weeping:
the human one, the son of a woman who lived like a son of God is dead.
Hard to believe, impossible to deny -
the wood, the nails, the mocking crown, the blood run down,
the cry – IT IS FINISHED.
Yes – finished, dead, moribund,
all our hopes and dreams lost, thwarted, slain, deprived, crucified.

Please support me to raise some money for Leukaemia Research - 7 years after my first diagnosis and just 4 years after my Bone Marrow Transplant.
I know that the research is providing earlier diagnosis, better treatments and positive outcomes…but more can be done to ensure many more are able to live through their with blood cancer.

£25 can help us understand why a patient does not respond to the best available treatment, so we can develop new therapies.
£50 can help us use stem cells to understand the cause of blood cancer, so that for many people we prevent blood cancer altogether.
£100 can give a child with leukaemia a new test to tailor her chemotherapy, preventing harsh side effects and making the treatment more effective.
