For Such a Time as this


I never read the Old Testament growing up though of course I heard it read at mass. Esther making a fuss and risking her life to save her people I do not recall ever having heard. It is a salient text in this time when in classic doublespeak health means death. His condition is stable, very stable – he’s dead. As in ‘reproductive health’. Dave Brennan references Esther 4 in his sermon for such a time as this. It is significant that the maundering of the Anglican (Episcopalian) Church is indistinguishable from pro-choice rationales when you put the two side by side. The nearest thing to a mega church in Britain is also reluctant to get involved in the pro-life activism of Brephos.

13Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews.
14For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
