  • Those who are led into peace by the Holy Spirit become peacemakers
    8 June 2017 @ 9:27 pm
    Here is my sermon from today's Eucharist at St Stephen Walbrook:There are two occasions on which we are told Jesus’ disciples received the Holy Spirit. The second was at Pentecost but the first was one of the Resurrection appearances, in which Jesus appeared to his disciples and said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit (John 20. 21 & 22). On this occasion the Holy Spirit came as the breath of God and as words of p [Read More]

  • Where does it hurt?
    27 May 2017 @ 8:08 pm
    It’s a familiar scene: you’re in a public place – perhaps a shopping centre, a playground, or a car park – and suddenly the background noise, the hum-drum sound of people going about their business, is interrupted by the piercing sound of a child’s cry. You can’t ignore it. It’s a human instinct. Something in your heart lurches at the sound of distress. And so you glance around to see who has cried out. And relief washes over you as you see the toddler – who has fallen or tripped and grazed his knee – with his parent rushing over, full of warmth and comfort and soothin [Read More]

    A fierce dove racing in a fiercer gale June the 9th is Saint Columba’s day, a saint who has a special place for me, as somehow, he feels bound up in my own journey to Faith. When I was 19, and moving from  atheism, towards a greater spiritual [Read More]

    • Beacons of light in the darkness
      8 June 2017 @ 3:28 pm
      Claire Moll is a member of the Community of St George – helping to renew the life of the parish church through prayer, reflection and organising – and bringing diverse neighbours together to build relationships and act for justice. In this blog, she reflects on the recent terrorist attacks, and the reactions in her neighbourhood. As Christians, we are called to be Christ’s light in the world. However, after a series of tragic attacks on our larger British community, if feels harder to keep that light burning. After the latest news of darkness falling upon the city of London on S [Read More]

    • Pray for Our Leaders | Connecting with Culture
      9 June 2017 @ 11:46 am
      Were you a bit bleary eyed this morning after a late night watching the election results? How do you feel about a hung Parliament? Sadly, the prevailing emotion amongst the majority of the electorate seems to be disillusionment; a kind of settled cynicism about both politicians and the political process.  Some of that is because not everyone believes the system works well. Churchill famously said, ‘Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others’. But there is a deeper root of disenchantment. We know how flawed our own human nature is, and how prone w [Read More]

    • Cool, Clear Water
      9 June 2017 @ 3:32 pm
      The whole time I hacked at those stubborn stumps, the only thing I could think of was getting a drink of water. Cool, clear water. I stood out in the early summer sun again today, swinging that mattock.  One would think the pain from the blister I just tore the top off would give me something else to think about.   One would be wrong. The sweat poured from my forehead burning my eyes, all the while, soaking my clothes.  I gasped for breath from the exertion.  Water was all I needed. Cool, clear water. [Read More]

    • All shook up: Elvis and Luther
      6 June 2017 @ 8:31 am
      This is the script of this morning’s Pause for Thought on BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans Show: I have just got back from ten days in Germany. The first half was work – speaking engagements in Halle, Jena and Berlin; the second bit was holiday with friends. Now, I know this wouldn’t be everyone’s idea of fun, but one of the best bits was a tour of the German Foreign Ministry – used to be Hitler’s bank, then became the HQ of the East German ruling party. History haunts the corridors here. But, the absolute best bit of the trip was a Bi [Read More]
