Hope for Ukraine - We serve the God Who helps those who are displaced

3/5/2022
Our theme for World Day of Prayer* was, "I Know The Plans I Have For You." The day and the service were planned and printed and prepared for well-before any knowledge of what was to happen in Ukraine. For this reason, I believe it is doubly comforting. God is in the business of restoring people who have been displaced from their homeland. More than this, He is also committed to their wellbeing during any season of displacement. The passage we had was Jeremiah 29:1-14, some of which I share...

Sermon - A Lover is a Giver

2/19/2022
"A Lover is a Giver; A Giver is a Lover." This inspirational message and sermon explores the link between giving and genuine faith. It was recorded while Storm Eunice was raging outside. This means it's atmospheric but not using the usual broadcast level of equipment I have... after all, the power was out! Thus, I've used battery-powered kit. Do you enjoy the benefits of having a generous heart? Those who truly love are naturally generous givers. They give without expecting to receive in...

On The Twelfth Day of Christmas - Here We Come A-Wassailing

1/5/2022
The 12th Day of Christmas On the 12th Day of Christmas, we celebrate the Eve of Epiphany. This means we are on the cusp of change. We end the 12 Days of Christmas and move into Epiphany. I rather like the decision of the Council of Tours in 567 (what a great date!) that there should be celebrations from Christmas Day through to Epiphany Eve – which gave birth to the 12 Days of Christmas – or what we Brits call Christmastide. This is a splendid idea since most folks don’t really come back...

The Eleventh Day of Christmas - The Festival of Saint Simeon Stylites

1/2/2022
Imagine being asked to leave a monastery for being too extreme. This was part of the journey taken by Simeon Stylites - a famous "Pillar Saint". Focus gets results.

The Tenth Day of Christmas - The Presentation and Naming of Jesus in the Temple

1/2/2022
Jesus was presented at the Temple, as was the Jewish tradition. This involved circumcision as the child's name was presented to God. We'd talk about a Christening nowadays, and a lot less blood and pain! In the classic movie, "Dances With Wolves," we learn of the Native American tradition of naming someone according to their most visible or memorable characteristic or characteristic behaviour. Kevin Costner's character was seen dancing with wolves, hence the name. What would your Native...

The Ninth Day of Christmas - Saint Basil the Great on Social Justice

1/2/2022
🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄THE 9TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS Saint Basil on Social Justice (and more!) The 16th Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations is, "Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions." Goal 10 of the 17 is, "Reduced Inequalities." Goal 1 is, "No Poverty." Goal 2 is, "Zero Hunger," and Goal 5 is, "Gender Equality." Saint Basil would approve. Quote 1 When someone steals another's clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and...

The Eighth Day of Christmas - The Feast of the Virgin Mary

"Let It Be" When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be Whisper words of wisdom, let it be [Songwriters: Paul Mccartney / John Lennon] I wonder if the Reformation was a rejection of Motherhood? It's an interesting thought given the venom against Mary. What would have happened if Sigmund...

The Seventh Day of Christmas - Saint Sylvester I - New Year's Eve

12/31/2021
In the Western Church, we celebrate Saint Sylvester the First - a Pope who was the Bishop of Rome for over 20 years. He was a great 'tribal' leader, holding the church strong against heresy and division. My message for the coming year is to "Choose Your Tribe" - by which I mean find a tribe that misses you when you're not there. You need a tribe that values you even when you cannot contribute. Any tribes you currently belong to who make no indication that you matter to them when you're not...

The Sixth Day of Christmas - The Feast of Saint Egwin

12/30/2021
The 6th Day of Christmas Saint Egwin (don’t think "St Eggwhisk"). Absolutely committed to supporting widows and orphans. He was very strict – promoting faithful Christian marriage, and clerical celibacy – which made him less than popular with many! He was dispatched to Rome to seek vindication from the Pope. Miracles happened en route that led to his later recognition as a saint. The miracles are mentioned in the recording so I won’t expand here. My point – a man of principle whose actions...

The Fifth Day of Christmas - The Feast of Saint Thomas à Becket

12/29/2021
"SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER" 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄On the Fifth Day of Christmas🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 we celebrate Saint Thomas à Becket. These words, famously attributed to Henry II - "Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?" allegedly provoked the murder of Thomas while in the Cathedral!!! Why was the king so irritated with Thomas à Becket? Because Thomas didn't have a Paradigm Shift so much as a Paradigm Earthquake! He went from being a very effective fundraiser for the king through way of a profound...

A troubling event remembered today - the slaughter, massacre by Herod, of the Holy Innocents in his attempt to kill Him, "who is born, King of the Jews."

The Third Day of Christmas - The Feast of Saint John

12/27/2021
The Feast of St John is the Third Festival of Christmas. John tells us everything starts with Words. Do you speak words of life and love? The power of words has been experienced by all of us. When someone genuinely says, "Thank you!" there's a feeling attached to those words. When someone says, "I believe in you," there is empowering energy attached to their faith. And when someone says, "I love you," your life can be transformed. The Apostle of Love, Saint John, is our Festival Saint for...

The Second Day of Christmas - the Feast of Stephen

12/26/2021
The Second Day of Christmas is The Feast of Stephen - famously mentioned in the popular carol, Good King Wenceslas. Are YOU a heretic? Calling all the heroic heretics on this, the Feast of Stephen. Drawing more on Seth Godin than on Acts 6 and 7 (which you can read), we explore how our time needs people who can no longer tolerate the status quo. People who will stand up and be counted. People who will lead their tribe. https://youtu.be/NgO2mih5eDY will take you to the same message with...

The First Day of Christmas

Here is the 1st prayer used today, from George Herbert - practically a neighbour from historic Salisbury and Wilton. "The shepherds sing; and shall I silent be? My God, no hymn for Thee? My soul's a shepherd too; a flock it feeds Of thoughts and words and deeds: The pasture is Thy Word; the streams Thy Grace, Enriching all the place. Shepherd and flock shall sing, and all my powers Out-sing the daylight hours." Psalm 23 in The Good News Translation The Lord is my shepherd; I have...

Call Claim Command - Three Steps to Victorious Christian Living

12/23/2021
2 years ago, the local Government provided me with sufficient funds to get through the first year of Covid. I didn't know about these funds. Someone else found out about them, and helped me claim them. But I had to Call upon the Council, Claim the funds, and then Command where they went. Our Christian walk with God is similar.

Galatians Chapter 6

10/23/2021
Galatians 6 World English Bible Brothers, even if a man is caught in some fault, you who are spiritual must restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself so that you also aren’t tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if a man thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each man examine his own work, and then he will have reason to boast in himself, and not in someone else. For each man will bear his...

Galatians Chapter 5

Galatians 5 World English Bible Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don’t be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Behold, I, Paul, tell you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing. Yes, I testify again to every man who receives circumcision that he is a debtor to do the whole law. You are alienated from Christ, you who desire to be justified by the law. You have fallen away from grace. For we, through the Spirit, by faith...

Galatians 4 World English Bible But I say that so long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a bondservant, though he is lord of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the day appointed by the father. So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental principles of the world. But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive...

Galatians Chapter 3

Galatians 3 World English Bible Foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you not to obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly portrayed among you as crucified? I just want to learn this from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now completed in the flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain, if it is indeed in vain? He therefore who supplies the Spirit to you and does miracles...
