Thought For The Day 15

April 10, 2010

“Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again… Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” (Jesus, aka Rabbi Yeshua, quoted in MATTHEW 7:1-5)

The radical, life-changing, central message of Christ, paraphrased at the climax of The Southwark Mysteries:

PETER                   Lord, if you would but make it clear
How each soul may be named and known.

JESUS                  He that has ears to hear, let him hear:
Then let him judge himself alone.


Tonight I would like to express my gratitude to all the professional cast and crew and to all the many volunteers who are working together so hard to make The Southwark Mysteries happen. It couldn’t happen without you.

I’d also like to publicly honour Katie, co-producer and hand-fast partner, for doing so much invaluable behind the scenes work. She hardly gets a minute away from these demanding Mysteries, and as if administering this once-in-a-decade community drama project wasn’t enough she has to put up with writer/co-producer’s dark nights of the soul.

Thanks, babe, for being true!

May the sun shine on – and in – us all! 🙂
