Duncan’s personal Psalm 40 experience: a moving faith story

This morning, preaching on Psalm 40, Duncan emphasised the importance of telling our personal faith stories. As we appreciate what others have learned in both dark times and times of joy so we are better equipped to cope with similar situations in our own lives.  The God King David found in his dark valleys of shadow walks with us too. Duncan courageously shared his own story of a jourmey through darkness, and he has kindly allowed me to share it

Bible reading for tomorrow: Psalm 40 – a sample faith story

Here's the Bible passage for tomorrow's service. One man shares his faith story.  I guess it both inspires us, and encourages us to think 'What words (or other ways of expression) can I use to share my story of belonging and believing?' Psalm 40 1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put

A walk in the woods

Iain Macritchie, who is well-known to us in Hilton Church has written the following very fine poem. As with all works of art it gives to each of us according to what we bring to it. I love Iain’s use of language and imagery in these lines, the warm compassion which permeates the poem and the reassurance it offers. The last few lines are, to me, simply breathtaking. This is a poem which, once read, will remain with you. I’m so grateful to Iain

Christ our Broch – a reflection on Hector’s children’s talk this morning
Broch Glenelg

At the service this morning, the preacher Hector Morrison showed the children some pictures of Scottish Brochs – including the Brochs at Glenelg and the even better preserved Broch of Mousa in Shetland, which is about 15 metres in diameter, and 40 metres high. About 500 Broch-sites have been identified, but very few are still standing 2000 years after they were built. After Hector and the kids had looked at the pictures he asked what they thought

Wait for the Lord – report of Hector’s sermon on Psalm 27

This morning, the service was led by Hector Morrison, Principal of Highland Theological College, and a member of Hilton Church. He preached on Psalm 27, encouraging each of us in whatever situation we’re facing to have confidence in God, and to wait ‘for the morning’ – for the moment of God’s transformational intervention. Psalm 27 is a prayer-poem writing at a time of crisis. The author is surrounded by his enemies (v6) whom he also describes

Find Father God on Father’s day

(A wee personal reflection from John) Overnight Thursday/Friday I woke up twice with a lovely sense of being secure in God’s love. The second time, it was as though I was immersed in God’s love like a fish fully itself in the cool freedom of the ocean depths. Father’s Day. God is immense beyond our understanding, but one of the ways in which God self-reveals to us is as a Father whose primary characteristic is love. Few of us I think have grasped

A hiding place in the Father’s House Bible passage for tomorrow’s service
Hiding place

Psalm 27 1 The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. 3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. 4 One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house

Take time to saunter!

Rosie emailed this afternoon to tell me that today (19th June) is World Sauntering Day. ‘Take it easy; relax, go for a stroll and enjoy some valuable ‘me time’; it’s a day which encourages you to slow down and enjoy the world around you’ says one of the web sites. Another defines sauntering as walking slowly ‘preferably with a joyful disposition.’ I like it – a reminder of the need not always to be rushing, not so to fling ourselves
