Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Assistant Curate at Lincoln Cathedral and St John the Baptist, Ermine. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of all our hearts be acceptable in your sight O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. I’ve been getting into Hitchcock films recently – I really loved Rear Window. But I didn’t know until recently that one of the things Hitchcock fans do is try to spot his cameos. In about two-thirds […]
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Assistant Curate at Lincoln Cathedral and St John the Baptist, Ermine. I’ve been thinking about laying the table a lot recently. It’s a crucial part of my role as a deacon – at the offertory, I set the Lord’s table for the people of God to come and eat. And part of my thinking has been on a very practical level – which of the two churches am I in? How many […]
Sermon preached by the Revd Canon Dr Jeffrey Heskins Prebendary of Luda in Lincoln Cathedral on Trinity 15 2014. The Christian faith has always placed such stress upon remembering that it sometimes makes me shudder. What must it be like to be forgotten? In just over a month we will enter the season of remembering. There will be All Saints, All Souls and Remembrance Sunday all of them festivals or commemorations of light in a season of darkness as light […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon The issue of unity is not far from media attention at this moment in time: we have the tragedy unfolding in Iraq and Syria with the rise of Islamic State; unrest continues in Ukraine with Russian supported separatists attacking government forces; as I write the people of Scotland vote one whether they wish to break a three hundred year Union.
The Mind of Christ Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Chancellor, Canon Dr Mark Hocknull, at the Sung Eucharist, Sunday 14th September 2014. A little word association game to begin with this morning. You know the sort of thing. I say a word and you respond with the first word that comes into your head. Except that it might be a little too radical to ask you to respond out loud during the liturgy of a sung eucharist in […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon The passage of time is beyond our control. We cannot stop night following day, week following week, the coming and the going of the seasons.
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Eleventh Sunday after Trinity, 31st August 2014. Yesterday in the church’s calendar we remembered John Bunyan, 17th C dissenter best remembered for his book ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’. One of his lesser-known works is ‘The Holy War’ published in 1682. It is an allegorical story of the battle for the human soul – a little too obvious for our taste today. But some […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon What’s to say about St Bartholomew, whom we celebrate today? We don’t know a great deal: he’s always mentioned in the company of Philip, he was one of the Twelve, he doesn’t appear in the Gospel of John, unless he’s Nathanael, he was a witness to the Ascension. Tradition has it that he took the gospel to India, and there are at least three […]
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Revd Professor Peter Neil at the Sung Eucharist on Sunday 17th August 2014. Once again I thank the Dean and Chapter for inviting me to preach this morning; it is such a tremendous privilege for me to participate in the service in this way. I recently experienced personally an illustration of this Gospel story; let’s entitle the episode: ‘the archdeacon and the vice chancellor‘. Both were travelling south on the train; the […]
