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 [...]

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 [...]

Reflections of a Lay Pastor: February 21st 2016: Lent

Today’s lectionary includes Genesis 15, in which Abraham laments his childless status and worries about who will inherit his considerable wealth. This is a story from the ancient past, classified by Jewish scholars as legend, written down perhaps 2500 years ago; but how immediate! People who suffer (and rejoice in) the lifelong responsibilities of parenthood [...]

Reflections of a Lay Pastor: January 24th 2016 Parables for Baildon

Nauru is a largely barren dot in the Ocean, it is built of bird droppings, and is in effect a large potash mine. You can drive round it in 20 minutes. It is 2/3 the size of Baildon and has won 10 gold medals in Commonwealth Games since they started competing in 1990. They have [...]

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. [...]
