The Abuse of Power and The Grace of God, Part 2 — Featuring Fraser Keay
Have you ever sinned, or messed up really bad, and then you tried to “cover it up”? How did that go? How long until it was discovered or you were found out? How far down the rabbit hole did you go trying to cover up one lie or sin with another and another?
My best mate, Fraser Keay, joins us during the month of January to share one of his published biblical monologues. He narrates a time in King David’s (Israel) life when he abused his kingly power and fell from God’s grace. This story is powerful. Today, in part 2, we look at David’s sin and subsequent coverup — which just unravels more and more.
In today’s From the Touchline episode, Fraser Keay (“Kay”) lends his voice and creative talents in the biblical monologue narrative: The Abuse of Power and the Grace of God: A Biblical Monologue Featuring David, King of Israel, Two Years after Murdering Uriah and Taking Bathsheba as His Wife. The narrative is written and recorded by Fraser and used with permission.
At the end of today’s episode, Rev Brad rejoins with some questions for reflection and a prayer. This narrative is based on the following biblical text found int he book of Samuel and Rev Brad references a passage of scripture in his reflection at the end which is hyperlinked (website) below:
