Looking at Jesus: thoughts from John on this morning’s sermon
John at Brodie

John writes: A powerful sermon. Jesus who died in order that we might live; the light which rescues us from darkness. What does ‘looking to Jesus’ mean to us today and in the week ahead? For some ‘looking to Jesus’ will mean major transformation. Someone who has been struggling with darkness of one kind or another – for example an addiction, a way of life which is corrosive to them and to others, a shattering of the foundation on which

Bronze serpent 2

Next Sunday marks the start of Advent, Duncan told us this morning, the four Sundays running up to Christmas in which we explore themes of darkness and light. ‘The people who walked in darkness, have [in Christ] seen a great light.’  (Isaiah 9:2) In fact, Duncan continued, we begin this study of light and darkness today in contrasting our final passage from the book of Numbers, 21:1-9 with some verses in John’s gospel quoting Jesus. The early

A pursuit of beauty
Ewing Brambling

On Sunday, Duncan tried an experiment which involved us all listening to Luke 10:1-17 read twice by Eilidh in the wonderful Message version. We then had to use our smartphone (if we had them!) to enter the word or phrase into an on-line site which generated a word-cloud which we were able to watch unfolding on the screen in front of us.  One phrase which captured quite a few folks’ imagination was where Jesus told the 70 people he was sending

Numbers 11:16-35 16 The Lord said to Moses: “Bring me seventy of Israel’s elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. 17 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone.

Thank you Stewart…..
Stewart Wallace 2

‘Missed you on Sunday!’ said Stewart Wallace when I met him at the Light House this morning. And he was right – I explained that we were away at a wedding last weekend. ‘Missed you too,’ I added. And I meant it. I’m sure we all really appreciate Stewart’s smile, his warm welcome, his uncomplicated acceptance of us as we are. And when I spoke to Dason and Connor at the Light House Café, where Stewart helps out most days, they described
