Reflections of a Lay Pastor: December 2nd 2018 What have we become?

Reflections of a Lay Pastor:  December 2nd 2018  What have we become? The Gospel story for today (Luke 2:25-39), reports how two people greeted the baby Jesus when they saw him for the first time.  Simeon was an old man and he took Jesus in his arms and said that he was content to die [...]

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: December 27th 2015

Luke tell us in chapter two of his Gospel that Mary and Joseph journeyed every year with other pilgrims to the Temple in Jerusalem;  it took them several days each way. How this fragment of the early life of Jesus survived to be reported by Luke is a mystery, as are so many ancient events. [...]

Reflection for November 16th 2014

Another story from Matthew 25, also about decision making, this time it is about money and about taking risks with the resources we have been given.  Clearly, this has lessons for us about parenthood, which is a combination of taking risks and spending money constantly. Some people (mainly men, of course) become parents unaware.  Men [...]

Reflection for January 19th 2014

Paul starts his first letter to the church at Corinth like a love letter.  He really did love those Corinthians!  This did involve the odd telling-off;  but it does. Being loved is one of our very basic needs.  Sadly, many children’s only experience of nurture involves shouting and slapping;  they can grow up to believe [...]
