See if you can spot what are called ‘cup and ring’ markings, created 20,000 years at the end of the last Ice age, on the Kintyre peninsula in the West of Scotland.
These ‘cup and ring’ marks were made by humans, who followed the end of the Ice Age. Throughout human history there has been a constant interplay between belief and understanding of our place in the world.
We could head into territory about belief and understanding, and the answers would be very diverse. We have the record of a saying of Jesus from 2000 years ago, when he was talking about who he was. In John’s Gospel, he simply says, ‘I and the Father are one.’…in a moment when crowds were demanding some answers from him.
Does Jesus solve the problem, or does he simply make it more difficult to understand? You will have your own reflections and ideas. But the answer is entirely yours and unique to you.
Those early engravings capture our attention because they allow us to make a connection with our ancestors. Jesus is very clear when he reminds us that the Father and Son are one. How that works out in our faith journey is the exciting part
