We decided to take the boys to the Circus today - it is the first time I have been in over 30 years - and it was great fun. Watching through the eyes of the kids was fantastic - it made it even more special.
What I find strange is that we still refer to this fun and entertainment as the 'Circus' - which is the same name given to the games in Rome in the 1st Century. At those events Christians were thrown to the lions and people laughed at that as 'entertainment' - thankfully humanity has changed a little since then...
...or have we?
Taking note of the senseless killings at the Lonmin mine this week, perhaps we are still struggling with sin and our evil human nature.
Friends, we don't need a ringmaster or leader - We need a Saviour!
