The Poisoned Chalice

A reflection on a stained glass window in Castle Carrock church (St John and the poisoned chalice). A huge thank you to the Brampton Chamber Choir (which includes Helen, one our Castle Carrock churchwardens) for offering us the beautiful Thomas Tallis motet which comes after the talk. The words sung are a quotation from the Gospel according to John 14: 15 - 17.

If ye love me keep my commandments and I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another comforter that he may bide with you forever, e'en the spirit of truth.
