Lenten Voices: On Her Majesty’s Service….

Kingsman_The_Secret_Service_posterKingsman: The Secret Service – is a rip-roaring enjoyable spy spoof lightly touching on some tangible everyday challenges – climate change, bullying, coming of age, redemption.

The genre, of course, draws on unflinching, totally dedicated, sacrificial service, epitomised by agents given to Her Majesty’s Service (or His Majesty, when the Kingsman private spy agency was born). The Apostle Paul appeals in the same way to the recalcitrant Corinthians, calling on them to emulate his ambassadorship and the “James Bond” lengths to which he is prepared to go that they and others will be reconciled to God and one another.  They and all who follow the Way of Christ, he summons to be his protégés.   See 2 Corinthians 5:20-6:10. 

The Lenten journey is focused on reconciliation – and it takes ambassador-like dedication to ensure application and accomplishment.
