Trinity 1 2018

I couldn’t resist picking that hymn this morning (Here I Am Lord by Dan Schutte), because of our Old Testament reading. You might like to keep it open in front of you.

2018 Jazz Evening

30, The Ridgeway, Suddenly summer is upon us, after what can only be described as a bumpy ride in!  Which means we can turn our attention to the summer of 2020 – only 2 years away.

Passion Sunday 2018

I wonder if you recognise this quotation: “They know and do not know what it is to act or suffer. They know and do not know that action is suffering, and suffering is action. Neither does the agent suffer nor the patient act. But both are fixed in an eternal action, an eternal patience to which all must consent that … Read More

Lent 3 2018

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 ‘In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan’… On Tuesday, when the Lenten snow began to arrive, Classic FM played that Christmas Carol, and I have to say, I was delighted! If only the message of the Christ child could be heard all year round, I often say, and although it has to be snow days that … Read More
