    A sermon for the start of Lent 2021

    I think this is the point where I am supposed to talk about Lent being a penitential time, and time for giving things up, but that seems patent nonsense in 2021. In the last eleven months we have given up more than we ever wished for longer than we would have wished. And we have lost some people ...read more

    A challenge to take leap of faith - a risk - for God

    Genesis 12:1-9 Hebrews 11:1-3 & 8-12 Psalm 91 Mark 1:16-20 This year is a leap year. 29 February is a special day which comes round only once every four years. 29 February is considered by some as a day to do something out of the usual, such as women proposing marriage to men. Radio 4’s PM ...read more

  • Who?

    Use of Jeremiah, John, and Luke, to bring out three persons of the Trinity, and an analogy with TV programme Dr Who - different faces and mystery.

    Luke 19:1-10 Jeremiah 32:21-25 John 20:19-23 As a child, I always enjoyed Dr Who on a Saturday teatime. For me, Tom Baker was the doctor - the others who came after weren’t quite the same. Perhaps, for you it was Jon Pertwee who was the doctor, or Patrick Troughton, or William ...read more

    A sermon for the first Sunday of Lent

    Luke 4:1-13 Deuteronomy 26:1-11 Romans 10:9-13 I’m told that it’s impossible to be hungry in the desert because of the sand which is everywhere. Today our readings take us into the desert, or the wilderness if you prefer (the words are the same in the Greek and Hebrew). Why is ...read more

    A sermon for Ash Wednesday - for a UK congregation

    Joel 2:1-2 & 12-17 John 8:1-11 I’m beginning, totally unsuitably for Lent, with an expression of pride. I’m very proud of my collection of the complete set of Carry On films - it’s the earthy British humour of the 1960s and 1970s at its best (or worst, depending upon your ...read more

    A man fell into a pit and he couldn’t get out. BUDDHA said: "Your pit is only a state of mind." A HINDU said: "This pit is for purging you and making you more perfect.” CONFUCIUS said: "If you would have listened to me, you would never have fallen into that pit." A NEW AGE PERSON said: "Maybe ...read more
