Chapter Letter 16th – 29th November 2014

Posted on November 14th, 2014 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor   Mark Hocknull, Chancellor   John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon We are almost at the end of the church’s year. The final Sunday of the church calendar is Christ the King on Sunday November 23rd. American preachers and church writers often say they struggle with this concept because they have little concept of kingship or monarchy. There may be an implication here that the concept of the kingship of Jesus is easier for those […]

Posted on November 3rd, 2014 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on All Saints Sunday, 2nd November, 2014. No man is an island entire of itself – Famous words of John Donne, poet, priest  and sometime Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral. We might well add that no Christian is an individual alone, isolated from the whole Christian family that extends across both continents and centuries. Today we celebrate the Feast of All Saints – […]

Chapter Letter 2nd – 15th November 2014

Posted on October 31st, 2014 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon We mark the Festival of All Saints today as we recall the household of faith to which we all belong through baptism. In Lincoln we are rightly proud of the two saints with whom our Cathedral is associated. Firstly is the mother of Our Lord, the Blessed Virgin Mary, in whose name the Cathedral is dedicated. The recently dedicated sculpture reminds us of this. […]

SERMON – SUNDAY 26TH OCTOBER 2014

Posted on October 29th, 2014 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Chancellor Canon Dr Mark Hocknull at the Sung Eucharist on the last Sunday after Trinity, 26 October 2014.            Sometimes, I just can’t help myself. Try as I might on hearing the words of the gospel reading this morning, I always hear the words of Michael Palin in a famous Monty Python sketch in my head.  “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise, fear and surprise; two chief weapons, fear, […]

SERMON – sUNDAY 19TH OCTOBER 2014

Posted on October 20th, 2014 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Assistant Curate at Lincoln Cathedral and St John the Baptist, Ermine. I don’t know if you saw in the news last month, that the now-former Minister for Charities said that churches should stick to their knitting and keep their mouths closed when it came to politics. It was hard to miss at the time – there was an immediate response condemning the statement as ignorant and insulting, clashing with this government’s message […]

Posted on October 20th, 2014 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached by Canon Peter Mullins in Lincoln Cathedral at Evensong on Sunday 19th October 2014, a service attended by members of the Prayer Book Society.  May words trip from my tongue at this time not hollow and vain, but in honour of Him, and which profit and please every person who hears them.  Amen. There is a poem from about the year 1400 which only survives in a single manuscript, one held by the Library of this Cathedral; the […]

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon     This weekend in the Wren Library we held a study day examining the world of Michael Honywood and his books. As many in the Cathedral will know, the Wren is home to some 5,000 or so books including Honywood’s own library collection that he bequeathed to the Dean and Chapter and so the collection has been maintained in the library purposely built […]

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon This week in the Cathedral, and elsewhere in the church we shall celebrate the life of perhaps one of the most prominent remarkable people of the 13th century: Robert Grosseteste, Bishop of Lincoln 1235-1253, and who is buried in the south-east transept of the Cathedral.
