26 November 2017 – Jim Timiney and “Gatekeeping”

Jim Timiney, of the Bradford Unitarians, began with the Sufi story of the locksmith who escaped from prison, then shared with us readings from Ralph Nelverson and Richard M. Fewkes. We considered the metaphor of the lock and key, including St Peter’s traditional portrayal as the gatekeeper to heaven, and human search for freedom and belonging.
