DOMINO Apr 29th – May 5th

Hi,
Do you believe in the resurrection? Do you believe? How far is not faith from ordinary life today, like a separate compartment with its own world…
And yet it is not!  Because faith is working us from inside, making us wonder, admire life, wanting life and even love each others sometimes…
We had  discussion after the film we saw last Sunday, A Serious Man by the Coen Brothers. David said they were making fun of religion. I claimed they were not. Perhaps both of us has a point there. It is surely a film that makes fun of religion – though perhaps not  the inner sense of religion, the desire for truth and life.  We meet in this film a religious community as social culture: people helping each other certainly, but also adjusting values so that everything runs smoothly. The worst transgressor, Sy, remains a respected member of the community, and  Lawrence who looses family, money and his home, the victim of Sy´s  unjustice, learns from his community that “you should change perspective and discover teh wonders of life”.
God, in the meaning of living, merciful God, seems to come in secon place in this business.
How can we maintain a sain view of religion and faith? Perhaps by questioning ourselves on our ways, not only in the religious field, but also in society in general. Be sure, God is helping us in this, working us from inside.

  -Film and Discussion: Fargo by the Coen brothers. USA 1996, 98 min.
“Every shot of Fargo is executed like it’s a piece of art with the Coens’ typical style; there is nothing at all wasted in the film, as the Coens make even what would normally be dull establishing scenes fun. Also, while Fargo is as black as black comedy can get, it isn’t completely over the edge. More restrained- the Coens have truly found their stride.” Filmcritic.com

DOMINO THIS WEEK Apr 22nd-28th

hi, it´s always like that – now when end of Spring approaches people are getting to know each others a bit better. And then only a month or two is left for many to be in Lund. We have to deal today with all those departures and comings, the rapid changes of a fluid reality.
Even more important then to be present at the place where  weare, standing steadily on our feet and then walk again – also steadily. To be present: I mean to be interested in what is happening in this particular place, get into relations, understand and – love all those differencies.  We see in the Gospel how Jesus is coming and going – like us – but also how every new situation is of interest for him- he engages with people wherever he meets with them, if they want to.
This demands something from us, this taking interest in new situations and people. We get easily hurt and soon we will leave each others. But there is also so much to win, love and understanding: Who is my neighbour? – Then one that happens sit next to me.
yours br Björn
