Instead of a written reflection, Roger has created a a video exploring both versions of his Abraham and the Angels.

Vicar’s reflections

Andrew Bunch writes:

This misuse of our relationship with God and His gifts is even more powerfully presented in Roger’s second later picture of Abraham and the Angels. Here the divine encounter is depicted as almost a side show to mankind’s pretentions to power as represented by the nuclear reactor. The question is raised: have we got our priorities right? Are we so obsessed with our own agenda that we fail to see the Divine encounters going on all around us?
