We spent this Wednesday of Holy Week hiking in the Valley of Desolation. I suppose this makes a certain amount of sense.
In case you are wondering, the Valley of Desolation is in Camdeboo National Park in South Africa.
I couldn’t help but use the time for reflections on Passiontide. I won’t bore you with them except to say that the extraordinary landscape of the Karoo seemed sublimely uninterested in my gratuitous theological reflections.
I rather think this blesbok’s expression at my presence in his home spoke more truth.
What are you doing here?
