In the wilderness

Either way, as we consider today’s readings, I wonder what we can learn about living in the wilderness of life, and how to be sustained spiritually in the midst of difficult times? Given the times in which we are currently living, with the spread of the Coronavirus, and the increasing concern it brings, this is perhaps a very timely theme to explore together.

In the same boat

Amongst our readings for Creation Sunday, this morning’s gospel tells the famous story of Jesus and his disciples in the boat on the lake. How might this episode in the life of Jesus and his disciples be a metaphor for our lives today? And how might we learn to trust God in stormy times?

Blessed are you

Today, perhaps more than any other time in history, we are surrounded by choices — this brand or that brand, this option or that option, remain or leave, deal or no deal (don’t worry this isn’t a sermon about Brexit!) At times the sheer amount of choices can paralyse us, unable to do anything for fear of making the wrong choice. Scientists call this the choice paradox — that having more choices actually makes us more anxious rather than more happy. So, in this age of choice where it is so difficult to tell right from wrong and good from bad, how can our faith in Jesus inform our decisions and help us to live well?

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…

Our Offering Transformed

Ninth Sunday after Trinity Readings: 2 Kings 4. 42-44; Psalm 145. 10-18; Ephesians 3. 14-21; John 6. 1-21 (view all) It’s everyone’s worst nightmare isn’t it? You throw a dinner party, you lay the food out, and then more and more people arrive and you realise there isn’t enough to go around. Perhaps that’s why, when we entertain, we so often put on so much food that there’s heaps left over. In both our Old Testament and Gospel Readings, we’re…

A Distinctive Calling

Sunday After Ascension Readings: Acts 1. 15-17, 21-26; Psalm 1; 1 John 5. 9-13; John 17. 6-19 (view all) One of the most sacred tasks in priestly ministry is to minister to those who are close to death. I can still remember the first time I was asked to visit someone, a lady, who knew she only had a few more days to live. She was there in bed, with her daughter gathered in close to her, and there was…

Life with God

Fourth Sunday of Easter Readings: Acts 4. 5-12; Psalm 23; 1 John 3. 16-24; John 10. 11-18 (view all) A few weeks ago, Amy, Evie and I went up to the Lake District for few day’s break after Easter. Well, it rained for most of those days, but on the final day the weather was lovely, so we decided to visit Hilltop, famous for being Beatrix Potter’s house. But of course, when we arrived the car ahead of us took…

Jesus the Firstborn

Creation Sunday Readings: Proverbs 8.1, 22-31; Psalm 104.24-35; Colossians 1.15-20; John 1.1-14 (view all) One of the joys of growing up in Mid Wales is the amazing scenery, even just the drive back home from South Wales has some incredible views as the road meanders along the side of the valley through the Cambrian mountains. But my home town, Aberystwyth, is also known for its unusual and dangerous weather events. On top of the perilously high waves at the sea front during bad weather, and…
