Prayers for Tunisia

Posted on July 3rd, 2015 | 0 Comments

Lincoln Cathedral will join the rest of the nation and hold a minute of silence at 12 noon today (Friday 3rd July 2015.)   The Church of England has issued three prayers to remember those who lost their lives.   Compassionate God and Father of all, we are horrified at violence in so many parts of the world. It seems that none are safe, and some are terrified. Hold back the hands that kill and maim; turn around the hearts that hate. Grant instead […]

sermon – sung eucharist, Second Sunday after Trinity, 14th June 2015

Posted on June 15th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Second Sunday after Trinity, 14th June 2015. One of the most vivid expressions heard in Parliament in recent years was Denis Healey’s description of  an attack by Geoffrey Howe in 1978 as like being savaged by a dead sheep.  That phrase was repeated when Howe turned on Margaret Thatcher and brought about her resignation as Prime Minister. The dead sheep had […]

Chapter Letter 14th – 27th June 2015

Posted on June 12th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon I had a discussion with a colleague in the University a few weeks ago about the relationship between Christianity and hospitality. My colleague was of the view that Christianity taught tolerance and forbearance of difference but the real advance of modern intellectual culture was the move beyond mere tolerance to hospitality and genuine welcome. It’s a fairly standard view of Christianity I find and […]

Peregrine Falcons 2015

Posted on June 12th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Our resident Lincoln Cathedral peregrines have a brood of at least 3 youngsters this year. Two of them were trying their first flight on a very windy afternoon on Tuesday 2 June, but unfortunately one of them landed in Eastgate, then had to be rescued from the edge of the old school playground to the north of the Cathedral and was returned to the nest site on the south side of the central tower. These photos taken by Eddy Chandler […]

Sermon – First Sunday after Trinity, 7th June 2015

Posted on June 10th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Assistant Curate at Lincoln Cathedral and St John the Baptist. +May the words of my mouth and the meditations of all our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our strength and our salvation. Amen.  Somebody once said “the optimist believes we live in the best of all possible worlds; the pessimist fears this is true.”  People often try to divide themselves into optimists and pessimists – and I think the […]

sermon – mattins, Sunday 7th June 2015

Posted on June 9th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached at Mattins in Lincoln Cathedral by The Revd Ann Mazur, on Sunday 7th June 2015. One of the advantages of being retired is that you can, on a whim without too much fuss, go away in the middle of a week. So it was that a few weeks ago I found myself back in one of my old haunts, Oxford University, visiting the Pitt Rivers Museum.  Wandering among all the exhibits I came across a collection of fossils […]

sermon – sung eucharist, sunday 31st May 2015

Posted on June 8th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached at the Sung Eucharist in Lincoln Cathedral by The Venerable Jonathan Chaffey, Chaplain-in-Chief of the RAF, on Sunday 31st May 2015. Holy Ground.  A place, a moment in time that is consecrated by the presence of God; a place of encounter, transformation and invitation.  Isaiah and Nicodemus discovered it unexpectedly. I wonder if we sometimes miss it?  Given the nature of his prophetic call, Isaiah needed the assurance of a personal encounter with God; there are many similar examples in […]
