The Abuse of Power and The Grace of God, Part 3 — Featuring Fraser Keay
We all need truth-tellers in our lives — you know, a person who isn’t afraid to tell you like it is, ready to call you out when you start to go astray. And this can be hard — to be confronted with the truth. What is your response when that happens? Do you get defensive? Are you stoic and unwavering? Or, is there a sense of sadness and repentance when you realize you’ve sinned, messed up, made a mistake?
My best mate, Fraser Keay, continues to share with us during the month of January through 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. Today, in parts 3 and 4, we see David confronted with his sin and watch and hear his response.
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 biblical text found in the book of Samuel and also on Psalm 51. Rev Brad references a couple scriptures in his reflection at the end which is hyperlinked (website) below:
