  • Sarn Helen

    Sarn Helen

    Tom Bullough’s opening remarks in [Sarn Helen]. He was hoping to find “what, these saints who perceived the divine in the landscape of wales might bring to our relationship with the natural world.” For I too have searched the ancient stories for the wisdom of those who lived in the world”

  • Post Greenbelt 2017

    Last weekend was Greenbelt Festival. In spiritual terms, for me at least, a time to stretch, to get up and be enriched once again. Not because I attended a long list of learned talks by significant theologians. I didn’t. And certainly not because I made a note of everything honourable that was said and done […]

  • There is but one way…

    … to get rid of the snow, and that it to build a sled for the children.  When I have finished it, (June or July sometime) the snow will be gone!  Whilst deciding whether or not to clear the drive and risk the car this morning – (nah, walk!) I was browsing a few books […]

  • Maundy Thursday

    We met with the young people, walked, talked awhile, then shared some food. Not too dissimilar to that last Passover of Jesus, so I wrote this in the style of John Bell and Graham Maule Eh, Jesus?

  • The God we Don't believe in

    Maggi Dawn on the God we don’t believe in I couldn’t agree more, why do we have to play silly language games to speak of things beyond our understanding rather than just admitting that we don’t know!!!  Once we admit that, then serious conversation can begin!

  • a bit of a talk…

    “Of course they will expect a bit of a talk…” Those words were echoing through my mind as the first reading from Genesis was being read. Creation, story, unbelief, busses and their god-less messages anything less meaningless!! Inspiration at the last possible moment came whilst drifting away from the reading back to the morning’s breakfast. […]

  • Cycling ‘n’ CME

    I Got the route correct this time!! Cycling as I was to Mold for CME, expecting great things on Mark’s Gospel, (and we got them) Dick France, a former principle of Wycliffe hall, writer etc was really quite engaging, and without all the new fangled toys that often appear at these days!! He was particularly […]

  • Blessed Bread

    I had been thinking about bread and its blessing during the Eucharist, came across a rubric from a Roman Mass which said (after the Hebrew Prayer, Blessed are you Lord God of all creation etc) “Now the Priest takes the Bread, which is now Christ’s Body”  Interesting, so the Hebrew prayer is enough words, that […]

  • the way, was slightly diverted for a time

      I was distracted from writing by an excellent few days, but I did pen this – almost as it was happening. The course material started this train of thought, focusing on who we are… There is a chapel atop a rocky outcrop near St. Beuno’s, the key to which is normally on the hook […]

  • In the Middle

    I was duly given the stern advice that one should get one’s priorities right – especially in ministry. God first, then the church, all else follows. My immediate response was of God third at least!! A much better response however was given by means of a meditation in chapel yesterday. God in the middle. Strangely, […]
