The Editor writes...Wisdom is an attribute that tends not to be widely celebrated in today's world. Stories of talent (especially of the performing arts variety), cleverness (especially of the passing exams variety) and cunning (especially of the political 'spin' variety) are what so often dominate the media. Wisdom, on the other hand, may be far less showy, far more of a back-stage, behind-the-scenes kind of influence - but one that, if heeded, has the potential to transform a situation or relationship. Over this coming year, "New Daylight" includes an extended series of readings exploring the theme of Jesus' wisdom, as found in Luke's Gospel. David Winter and Stephen Cottrell have written two weeks each in this issue and, as David puts it in his introduction: 'This wisdom...is more than intelligence or knowledge - insight, vision and understanding are its roots.' I hope you find much food for thought as you follow the series; I have certainly gained a lot from editing it. I would also like to welcome a new contributor, Ian Adams, who guides us prayerfully through "Psalms" 50 and 51. His notes are followed by a very different topic: clothing and hair in the Bible! Far from being a frivolous diversion, however, this topic raises important questions to do with how we interpret scripture, especially in relation to everyday life. Veronica Zundel offers stimulating insights to help us in this challenging process. Our Holy Week and Easter readings are brought to us by Andrew Jones, who invites us to accompany him on an imaginative pilgrimage to some of the places most closely linked to the events of this special season in the Church's calendar. Andrew writes from many years' experi-ence as a pilgrimage leader, both in the UK and abroad, as well as time spent studying in Israel. His readings are a vivid reminder that the events we commemorate happened in real places, at a specific time in history. We may not have had (or ever hope to have) the privilege of visiting the actual sites, but this Easter we can travel there in our hearts and, like any pilgrims, journey onward with renewed energy and God-given hope.
