What does the Lord require of you?

The prophet Micah tells us (Micah 6:8) that you are “to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God”.

Christopher Fry conceived that ageless challenge in gentle verse in his verse play, Thor, With Angels. The play is set in 6th century England where a Jute warrior repents his war spirit and, with fear and no dogmatism, becomes a Christian. “We are afraid,” he says, in peroration,
“To live by the rule of God, which is forgiveness,
Mercy and compassion, fearing that by these
We shall be ended. And yet if we could bear
These three through dread and terror and terror’s doubt . . . I cannot think
We should be the losers.”
