Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Sixth Sunday after Trinity, 27 July, 2014. I have a text this morning which comes from none of the readings we have just heard, yet illustrates what lies behind them. In Luke’s version of the teaching that we call the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says: Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Part of the role we have as a Cathedral is to support the work of the Diocese and to offer prayers for our world day by day. This task has a particular focus for us at this present moment:
Sermon Preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Subdean, The Revd Canon John Patrick, on Sunday 20th July 2014. May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of all our hearts be acceptable in your sight O Lord our Strength and our Redeemer. Amen. ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where then did these weeds come from?” The tragedy involving Malaysian Airlines MH17 has rightly focussed the attention of the world’s media over the last few […]

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Lincolnshire County Council Service, 13th July 2014. Last Sunday I was preaching at another church in Lincoln – in Lincoln, Massachusetts, USA. A small town just outside Boston, they proudly told me that although there are many towns called Lincoln in the United States, they believe themselves to be the only one directly named after our own city here. All the others, I presume, were […]
Sermon preached by the Chancellor, Canon Dr Mark Hocknull, in Lincoln Cathedral on Sunday 13th July 2014. The Profligate Love of God
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Greetings from Lincoln! I bring the warm greetings of St Anne’s Episcopal Church in Lincoln, Massachusetts, where I was preaching last Sunday. That Lincoln, just outside Boston MA, is possibly the only one of the many towns named Lincoln to be called after our own city – the rest named in tribute to the former President, Abraham Lincoln.
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on Trinity Sunday, 15th June 2014. A happy co-incidence today as we celebrate Father’s Day on Trinity Sunday. For in a sense this is the festival of God the Father. From Christmas to Easter our thoughts have been on the life of God the Son – Jesus Christ; then last week at Pentecost we thought of God the Holy Spirit; and so today […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean The Sunday after Pentecost is a Sunday that many a preacher dreads. It is the one day in the Church year when we explicitly focus on the doctrine of the Trinity. This Sunday celebrates the threeness of the one God. Earlier in my ministry I had the joy of being the deanery sub-warden of Readers, offering support and encouragement to some 50 or so Lay Readers in the […]
Lincoln Cathedral has published a new, concise book about Magna Carta’s history and significance in advance of the 800th anniversary celebrations in 2015. Magna Carta: the Lincoln Story is more than a guide book. It tells the little-known story of the way in which Lincolnshire’s people and places were closely involved in events leading up to Runnymede, in the civil war afterwards, and in the continuing recognition of Magna Carta as an icon of civil rights.
