All cheeky choristers know that as well as the angel Gabriel telling Mary that she was a ‘most highly favoured lady’, the chronicler mis-heard the acclamation and initially wrote the a recipe for ‘most highly flavoured gravy!’ I still struggle to sing the orthodox word.
And yet I follow Jesus, ‘dedicated’ and ‘favoured’ by God.
The outworking of Jesus humanity is the absolute flavour that he asks us to live.
We are to savour and live with a flavour recognised by any who see us.
