We are now in Talk 3 of our Feast series Depths of Mercy.
Titled In the Belly of the Beast, Talk 3 centres on the key message There are blessings at the bottom.
People have known this a long time ago.
In the 14th century, Italian poet Dante Alighieri wrote The Divine Comedy, and in his masterpiece, he said, “The path to paradise begins in hell.”
Meaning? Sometimes, a person needs to hit rock bottom before he can even start climbing out of his pit. He needs to be brought to a place where he has no alternatives. Once there, he realizes his pride vanishes, his stubbornness evaporates, his deafness is healed, and for the first time in a long while, he starts listening.
