The Church of England festival today is ‘The Conversion of Paul’ when we remember his dramatic conversion on the road to Damascus and what resulted from that. In the spirit of the worst preaching techniques of making clumsy connections between what’s making news and the Good News of the Gospel here are 3 contrived connections between Haggis/Burns Night and Conversion/St Paul:
- Burns called the haggis the chief of puddings. St Paul called himself the chief of sinners.
- Some people get drunk on whisky on Burns Night. St Paul advised “be filled with the Spirit”.
- Burns Night helps unite people with Scottish identity. St Paul called for “unity of mind and purpose” for those who are members of one body in Christ.
