‘You are my light, Lord’
Flower 2

A personal meditation on this morning’s service by John Dempster I remember a few years ago going with some friends for a picnic in the hills just behind Garve. In a burn we walked beside, I saw a single flower which had somehow managed to take root among some rocks in the middle of the stream. It stretched its precarious loveliness towards the sun. But seeing it prompted sadness rather than delight, for I knew that autumn would come and the burn

A report and personal reflectionby John Dempster on this morning's service. This morning, Jonathan preached on Romans 7:15-25 – where St Paul writes about the inner battle to do what we know is right. This is one of the most hotly debated passages in the whole Bible – I remember hearing about a Bible expert who, every time he came across a new book about Paul’s letter to the Romans turned first to see what the author had to say about chapter

HERE

And so here we are again, At the door. And you wait, gracious as you always are, to be invited in. It’s your place really, And these your people too, These people that you’ve given me, Whose hearts I cannot see, Whose thoughts I cannot read, Whose pain I can only surmise Whose lives from sunset to sunrise Are hidden from my eyes. No point really to go in without you. How easily I forget. Father, ripen in me your gifts of grace To do all I do

A personal reflection on this morning's service by John Dempster. There was a kind of valedictory feel to the service this morning – the last Sunday before the school holidays, and the summer break, when there are fewer church activities and many of us, as Duncan reminded us, will be away on holiday. I was glad that Duncan mentioned those of us whose summer will be spent in Inverness. Glad because I remember when I was much younger, living on my
