Turn the other cheek

Will love find a way?

Here are two clips from the 1990’s. Protest songs? The music is soft as a feather, but I think they drink from a deep well of power which resonates throughout generations.

If you turn the other cheek will you just get hit twice? – or can it be a form of passive resitance that forces an abuser of power to recognise their abuse?

And to finish, something only about a decade old – but which echoes words from one of the oldest of English stories of herosm and tragedy.

Can Love find a way? There are many experiences of Love, some bring tears, some laughter, but Love gives the strength to endure and transform.

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13
