Not TERRIBLY manly…………..crying as you drive up the motorway. The reason? This radio programme – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ppp2v .

Please have a listen. It’s not religious, not complicated, but it IS beautiful. The story of a burglary, a death and a meeting doesn’t sound compelling but it is.

We are all created in God’s image. And two (maybe three) of the characters involved clearly demonstrate the beauty that exists in humanity. And it is that beauty, the beauty that reflects God’s image in us, that made me cry – with a mixture of empathy, sorrow, joy, amazement and love for these people and the God that creates us.

These people truly are ‘wonderfully made’ in the image of a wonderful God. This is a story of unlikely kindness, beautiful forgiveness, impossible redemption and awesome love. Listen to it.
