On the journey: the unchanging contours of divine love

This morning Duncan preached on Psalm 121:I lift up my eyes to the mountains –     where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord,     the Maker of heaven and earth.He will not let your foot slip –     he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel     will neither slumber nor sleep.The Lord watches over you –     the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm

Love bade me welcome

Last night, I was at church for the ‘Welcome meal’ which Duncan, Jonathan and the elders had arranged for folk who have recently (in the last couple of years or so) started coming to church. There must have been about fifty folk there, including lots of children. It was, I thought, a lovely welcoming gesture.Some reflections:Eating together is important as Christians.  We can forget that the first Christians took what we call ‘communion’

Finding our true identity

 I thought Duncan’s sermon this morning was extremely helpful. For those of you who weren’t there, he was preaching on Maathew 4:1-11 (the Gospel passage for the first Sunday in Lent) about the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. He examined it in the light of the immediately preceding verse (Matthew 3:17) where Jesus is assured by a voice from heaven that ‘This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.’This, Duncan reminded us,

Duncan’s take on the first 4 of 40 Acts for Lent

I have to confess that I was slightly sceptical about 40 acts for Lent when I watched the introductory video last Sunday morning. Baking cupcakes isn't really my sort of thing, and I found it challenging to imagine myself out on the street distributing them. Having begun the 40 acts with that kind of uncertainty, I'm glad to report that the first few days have been exceptionally encouraging and stimulating. The focus today  on our neighbours and

Make funds fun

Stated Annual Meeting:   Once a year we require to present the annual accounts and elect new members to our Congregational Board.  This is a very important meeting since it involves accounting for our stewardship of all the offerings which are given to the Church. Historically, only a handful of people turn up to this meeting, so we thought that we might try to emphasise the opportunity for having a good social night. The formalities will probably

A one-star story

Here's a report from Shona of the Bookgroup held last week at the Light House: "I have to say that our Book Group this month was fairly unanimous in not enjoying A Possible Life by Sebastian Faulks. The book is separated into five sections describing the lives of five different characters. Throughout the book you are  looking for a connection between them all, and it does not appear! Also, each story is fairly depressing and sad. So our Bookgroup
