|Jesus as the Good Shepherd|
On Easter Sunday this year, BBC Radio 4's Profile featured an interesting profile of the Reverend Lucy Winkett. You can find more details here:
The multi-talented Reverend Winkett is Rector of St James’s Piccadilly, in London. As well as having a formidable intellect and a devotion to her duties, she's also a gifted musician with a real talent for communicating with everyone, whether they are a Christian or not. The Radio 4 programme included a recording of her telling an anecdote which went something like this...
"Did you know Jesus is a woman? He was surrounded by men who wouldn’t listen, He had to feed hordes of people at short notice with hardly anything to hand, and even when He was dead, He had to get up again because there was still more work to be done..."
Whatever your feelings on religion in general (and women priests in particular), you have to agree the Church of England could do with more people like the Reverend Lucy Winkett. You can find out more about her here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucy_Winkett
