    What John said
     
    He came from far outside the city, from a place thought of as foreign and unusual.

    He didn’t look the same as others. His behaviour seemed wild and strange. It wound some people up - he had his enemies.

    His message was a tough one: he told the people to turn around, to change their ways.

    But his message was humble too, because anyone who would listen to him he pointed towards Jesus, offering them a new vision of new life in Christ.


    With that intro this morning most people thought I was talking about John the Baptist. But actually this was my way of introducing the words of John Sentamu. I reckon that last Wednesday's sermon at his installation as the new Archbishop of York had a touch of the Baptist's about it. So that's what the folks got in our church today. Stirring stuff.
