Scripture: St John 6: 1 to 21 During the past 18 months (or so) all of us have been faced with some considerable uncertainty.  Scientists have constantly used adjectives like ‘unprecedented’, and ‘unusual’ when asking us to take note and heed the warnings and directions of the life-style restrictions set for us by the government. […]

Square Dance in Heaven. I am swapping studies with my wife, Daphne. She is to continue working from home and we would like our dining table back so that we don’t have to remove piles of reports when we need to pass the salt. The thing is that her room (where she irons and sews) […]

Ah kent yer faither! This Sunday’s gospel reading is Mark 6:1-13. Nobody came out of it well. Even Jesus was wrong-footed, disconcerted. ‘He could do no deed of power there.’ He had arrived home after a long trip, where people thronged round him and marvelled at his work. According to Mark, there was the woman […]

A Reflection on Mark Chapter 12 verses 21 to 43. I think that this passage in Mark’s Gospel defines and epitomises what we have all come to see in Jesus Christ.  Christ the healer. Here we have two healing stories woven together into one: the daughter of Jairus and the woman with the haemorrhage, one […]

A Reflection on the Scripture reading Job Chapter 1. Job was a good man; he was wealthy and had many farms and animals at that time, riches beyond compare.  He also had a large family of ten children. In short Job had everything going for him because he was also at one with God. The […]

Scripture reading:  Mark 4:26-34 “With many such parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it; he did not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything in private to his disciples.” Parables are truly wonderful teaching tools and can range in length from this very brief one […]

Text: Scripture St Mark “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” Have you ever asked: Why? Why me? What did I do to deserve this? Yes? Well, so have I. We all question our faith from time to time, and that is good. So, I think that this story from Mark 4, of […]

A Reflection by Rev Douglas Galbraith for Trinity Sunday

30th May 2021 ‘The Holy Trinity doesn’t do anything for me.’ That was the answer of someone in a survey. You can see why. Unlike the Garden of Eden, the stable at Christmas, the Pentecost crowds, it has no story to enjoy. There is no ‘human interest’. Worst of all, it doesn’t seem relevant. These […]
