Posted on March 6th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacona In the tradition of the prophets of old we find the contemporary writer and most acute observer of life, Alan Bennett, railing recently against the hypocrisy of our society. In a radio programme last week he identified hypocrisy as one of England’s world-class achievements. We glory in Shakespeare yet we close our public libraries was one such example he offered.

Chapter Letter Sunday 22nd February – Saturday 7th March 2015

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon When I was at theological college, one of my biblical studies lecturers said something that has remained with me every since. He said “The most important lesson to learn when reading the Bible well is learning to be surprised.” It was not something I was expecting to hear on my first day studying theology after a short but enjoyable scientific career. I suppose the […]

sermon – Sung Eucharist, Sunday next before Lent, 15th February, 2015

Posted on February 16th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Sunday next before Lent, 15th February, 2015. Flowers are often a gift on Valentine’s day, as some of you may have found yesterday: and they can provide or provoke memories. There is a lovely piece of writing in his autobiographical work Story of a Life by the Russian author, Konstantin Paustovsky, in which flowers do just that. The setting is a […]

sermon – 15 February 2015

Posted on February 11th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Assistant Curate at Lincoln Cathedral and St John the Baptist, Ermine How mediaeval we are this morning! Our ancestors worshipping here six hundred years ago would recognise our solemn candle-lit procession from the West End to the High Altar. They would have made the same procession, each carrying a candle and a penny, while the choir sang the Nunc Dimittis; they would have processed right up to the High Altar and would […]

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at Choral Evensong attended by the Mayor of Lincoln, 8th February 2015. Political life in our present day is concerned with – one might even say obsessed by – the people’s reactions. I observe  this not just because we welcome our Mayor and political leaders of the City here this afternoon, but also because I have spent this past week in London, recalling the political life of […]

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Chancellor Canon Dr Mark Hocknull on the 8th February 2015. The Image of the Invisible God Many of you will have read about or perhaps seen extracts of the minor controversy caused by Stephen Fry last week about the problem of human suffering and the question of God. Appearing on an Irish TV chat show, Fry was questioned about his well known atheism and invited to say what he would say to God […]

Chapter Letter 8th – 21st February 2014

Posted on February 6th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon To have but not to hold. This is how we sometime describe our responsibility as custodians of this great cathedral building and its many treasures. It means I think that we see ourselves as custodians rather than owners, stewards rather than possessors by right. It also means that we seek as far as we can to share what we have with the wider population, […]
