Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor    Mark Hocknull, Chancellor    John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Following the service held on 13 March ‘A Service of Remembrance: Afghanistan 2001-2014’ attended by the very large number of men and women of the Royal Air Force who had served in operations there over that period, I was interviewed more than once and asked about the challenge of putting on such a service at relatively short notice. I had to reply that to […]

sermon – sung eucharist, third sunday of lent, 8 march 2015

Posted on March 11th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Third Sunday of Lent, 8 March 2015. Last Sunday I was attacked by the Welsh exiles in our midst for the lack of mention of St David on 1st March – St David’s Day. Impervious to the tradition that Sundays in Lent overshadow any such saints day, and flushed with the success at Rugby the previous day, they felt slighted by […]

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.

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

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

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 […]
