In the days before the digital download dominated the music world and the humble cassette was still king I recorded a song which I've subsequently recorded a couple of more times, most recently on a new CD (that still isnít fully completed!). The words, the music, the arrangement haven't changed much at all though the voice has got croaker and the guitar playing a shade less certain! One of the words in the title has become less and less common in our vocabulary. That word is Calvary, the name of a small hill outside the city of Jerusalem where Jesus Christ the Son of the living God was nailed to a wooden cross, the Rome method of execution for criminals. To believing people the word Calvary has always been precious, offering the way of forgiveness and peace with God, but also the challenge to live a selfless life in the service of Christ. Many years ago I started to face this challenge and slowly began to understand the words of Jesus when he said, ĎAnyone who loses his (or her) life for my sake will findí. As people in the Western world have forgotten the word Calvary so many have forgotten that selfless living, looking to serve God and others is the one thing that brings real satisfaction. Maybe the ever increasing need for entertainment, which temporarily fills the emptiness inside, is the result of leaving Calvary behind. Oh, that more and more people would stop, think and start travelling down the CALVARY ROAD.
