Reflections of a Lay Pastor: February 10th 2019: Trust

How do we know whom to trust?  More to the point, how do we make sure that our children find out quickly enough in their short teenage years whom to trust?  “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to no one”, is wise advice from Shakespeare; but the Bible was not written by people who [...]

Reflections of a Lay Pastor: September 23rd 2018: Consider the children

Mark’s gospel, the first to be written, ends with the mysterious empty tomb rather than the later resurrection stories.  It is short, punchy, and in many ways shocking.  In chapter 9, Jesus is trying to talk seriously to the disciples about the future and all they can do is to argue amongst themselves about how [...]

Thoughts for the week: April 8th 2018 Giving your heart…

In 1986, Wham! issued a track that is surely on everyone’s Christmas playlist:  “Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day you gave it away…”  Young people nowadays seem to lack confidence in promising life-long partnerships even when convinced that they are in love.  Not surprising.  So many such partnerships go [...]

Reflections of a Lay Pastor: July 31st 2016: Sweet Sixteen, goes to church…

In 1957, Lonnie Donnegan released a 78 called “Putting on the Style”; he re-released it in 1970 when, evidently, a sixteen-year old girl could still go to church “just to see the boys”.  She would be disappointed nowadays.  Why is that? Have our children and grandchildren seen through what they believe to be inconsistencies that [...]
