Grey Skies Over Liverpool

Today is the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, ninety-nine years ago.  Many of the crew who went down with the ship came from Liverpool.  Whole streets were left without their men: husbands, fathers, sons.

Tomorrow is the anniversary of the 1989 Hillsborough Disaster.

These are black days for Liverpool.

This cry of the heart – a psalm Jesus sang at the end of the Passover meal on the night before his death; the words on his lips in the garden of Gethsemane – seem appropriate: Psalm 116.
