Never Again (Remembrance)

2nd Sunday of the Kingdom Readings: Jonah 3. 1-5, 10; Psalm 62. 5-12; Hebrews 9. 24-28; Mark 1. 14-20 (view all) At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month the Armistice was signed, bringing to an end the First World War. The four years and three months of the Great War were characterised by brutal trench warfare and near constant bombardment. During this time somewhere between 750,000 and 1 million British soldiers gave their lives, with a…

Simple Faith

1st Sunday of the Kingdom Readings: Deuteronomy 6. 1-9; Psalm 119. 1-8; Hebrews 9. 11-14; Mark 12. 28-34 (view all) I have a real problem with writing long sentences. Particularly when I was studying for ordination, I used to ask my wife Amy to proofread my essays, and she’d often have to cut down the huge sentences I’d written which were sometimes three or four lines long. It was always a difficult process having to choose what to prioritise, what…

A Life Changed

Last Sunday after Trinity Readings: Jeremiah 31. 7-9; Psalm 126; Hebrews 7. 23-28; Mark 10. 46-52 (view all) One of the wonders of modern technology is ‘call screening’ — you can now see who is phoning you before you take their call. I wonder whether, for whatever reason, you ever see who’s calling and decide to ignore it. Perhaps because you know it’s a marketing call, or because you’re busy, or don’t have time for that person. I know I’ve…

Freedom to Serve

Twenty-first Sunday after Trinity Readings: Isaiah 53. 4-12; Psalm 91. 9-16; Hebrews 5. 1-10; Mark 10. 35-45 (view all) Not long ago, Amy, Evie and I went across to St Fagan’s for the day, and discovered that they have a new attraction — a high ropes course! You are harnessed in and taken up a long staircase until you are at the tops of the trees, and then have to negotiate your way around various tightropes and other obstacles, ending…

The Riches of Grace

Seventh Sunday after Trinity Readings: Amos 7. 7-15; Psalm 85. 8-13; Ephesians 1. 3-14; Mark 6. 14-29 (view all) I’m afraid this morning I need to get off my chest that I’ve failed as your priest this week. I confess before you and before God that I did sneak away early from the Ladies’ Forum Eucharist on Wednesday night so I could watch the end of the England match! It was a dramatic night, and a real mix of emotions.…

Vulnerable Mission

Sixth Sunday after Trinity Readings: Ezekiel 2. 1-5; Psalm 123; 2 Corinthians 12. 2-10; Mark 6. 1-13 (view all) I’ve always been fiercely independent — my parents tell me that growing up my catchphrase was always ‘I can do it myself!’ In fact, there’s one famous story from when I must have been around five or six years old, and my parents had decided to redecorate my bedroom in our brand new house. So we went to the shops together…
