Chapter Letter 14th Decemeber 2014 – 10th January 2015

Posted on December 12th, 2014 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor   Mark Hocknull, Chancellor   John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Many thanks indeed to the host of people whose combined efforts made for a very successful Cathedral contribution to the Christmas Market. Although the number of people visiting was down on last year, income was up in every department, and we were able to increase the number of things to which visitors could come. We believe therefore that the visitor experience was improved in […]

Posted on December 3rd, 2014 | 0 Comments

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 meditations of all our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our strength and our salvation. Amen. Happy New Year! Well, happy new church year, anyway. A year that starts, not with a new month or a new phase of the moon or even a significant festival – but with a period […]

Chapter Letter 20th November – 13th December

Posted on November 28th, 2014 | 0 Comments

Philip Buckler, Dean   Gavin Kirk, Precentor   Mark Hocknull, Chancellor   John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Prepare ye the way of the Lord  –   As Advent, and indeed a new liturgical year, begins, I wonder what echoes these words conjure up for you?  Perhaps it is the opening number of Godspell.  Maybe it is the tenor recitative introducing the aria Every valley from Handel’s Messiah?  Perhaps you think of the brave people who seek to evangelise on High Streets wearing […]

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 […]

sermon – Sung Eucharist on All Saints Sunday, 2nd November, 2014

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 – […]

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 […]
