A faith journey: Barry Clarke’s story
Barry Celti

‘Our life up here has been wonderful,’ Barry tells me. ‘An absolute delight in every way.’ ‘So that’s my story,’ he concludes, smiling. I’m talking to Barry Clarke. Barry lives in Moray, having moved from England with his wife some years ago. He’s a friend of Iain Todd, and follows the Hilton Church blog, and he got in touch after we published Peter Naulls’ story at the end of last year. Barry really appreciated Peter’s story.

Thoughts from John on Praising God

I guess sometimes we burden ourselves with lists of ‘oughts’ – ‘I ought to do this; I ought to do that,’ 'I ought to praise God,' and we feel failures because of our shortcomings. The bottom line, I think is that God loves us – whether or not there is one iota of praise in our hearts at a given moment – and of course, that itself is reason enough to praise. But if the Psalms teach us anything, it’s that we can be real with God. It’s

Praise the Lord: Notes on a sermon from Jonathan on Psalm 150

This Sunday, the passage was Psalm 150, and Jonathan was the speaker. Jonathan also spoke on a similar theme a few Sundays ago, so it would be good to read the notes below alongside the report of what Jonathan said about Psalm 100, and John’s reflection on Jonathan’s sermon. Psalm 150 says this: 1 Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. 2 Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing

Praise the Lord: Bible passages for Sunday

Psalm 150 1 Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. 2 Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. 3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, 4 praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, 5 praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. 6 Let everything that has breath praise

Songs we sang on Sunday

Here are the songs we sang on Sunday - very positive and encouraging. I saw in the 'Wonderful God' link someone had commented that the song made them sad, because s/he used to sing it at Primary School. That comment touched me - speaking of loss of the security of childhood. Please pray for this person. We all must journey from the simple 'Wonderful God!' of childhood, to the place where, on the far side of pain and brokenness we can say with a new

Calcutta is everywhere: the breaking-in of the kingdom

Philip Noble reminded us yesterday that when Jesus tells us to pray to God 'Your kingdom come' he is not talking about an earthly kingdom here but about the reign of God. And God reigns – the kingdom breaks in – when whatever God wants The American Franciscan priest Richard Rohr shared these words from Shane Claiborne in his daily email yesterday, which are very relevant: There’s something powerful that happens when we can connect our faith

Lord, teach us to pray: Philip Noble’s sermon on Luke 11:1-4

Philip Noble was leading the service on Sunday – in his sermon he focussed on Luke 11:1-4, the ‘Lord’s Prayer’: One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.’ 2 He said to them, ‘When you pray, say: ‘“Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. 3 Give us each day our daily bread. 4 Forgive us our sins, for we
