Walking on water: wisdom and the Christian family

A very personal reflection on this mornng's service from John Dempster. ‘Wisdom’ and ‘family, were among the key themes at this morning’s service.

The context was one of this Sunday’s

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

Grace abounding

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
