A Song from the Hill Country


On this mountain
the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food,
a feast of well-aged wines,
of rich food filled with marrow,
of well-aged wines strained clear.
(Isaiah 25:6)

The Resurrection

From 'On this Mountain'
Luke 24:1-8

The discovery of coal brought a new way of life to the valleys of South Wales: a tunnelling deep into the ground, cutting through the rock in search for something to fuel the lives of people. For those who mined, every day was an endless night. Going to work under cover of darkness to descend to even deeper darkness and, with it, the constant danger, the hard manual labour, emerging, at the end of the day, to greet more darkness.

And in another cavern, carved from rock, the darkness of three days of endless night is turned to endless day. Christ is risen from the dead. He has no place within the earth. His living hell transformed to heaven, as he emerges from the tunnelled rock to reveal a new way. The closed cavern is opened from within, and Mary’s pierced heart is turned to joy.

The Image of Mary and Jesus at Penrhys is a sign of loving faithfulness. And so we follow her who followed his every move. The valley is now restored, the mines sealed, the industry ended but the people remain. And through decades of looking for new ways to bring wealth and livelihood, there remains a Church where the people God has called his own indulge in the industry of love, whose productivity is immeasurable and fruitful.

How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of the herald, the bringer of good news, announcing deliverance,
proclaiming to Zion, ‘Your God has become king.’

(Isaiah 52:7)
