Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the 13th Sunday after Trinity, 30th August 2015. It looks as though we have a problem. At first sight two of our readings this morning appear to be in conflict. That Gospel reading seems to contradict our first lesson from the Book of Deuteronomy [4.1-2,6-9]. For there we heard of the need to keep all the commandments of God, diligently observing the […]

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Chancellor, Canon Dr Mark Hocknull, at the Sung Eucharist on the Twelfth Sunday after Trinity, 23rd August 2015. Making the Right Choice God can’t change the past, but historians can. So said Samuel Butler in the 19th century. He almost has a point. Historians cannot change the past; they cannot change what has actually happened. But they can and do change the interpretation of the past and they can and do change the […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Succentor I am always Canon-in-Residence in August, and have cause each year to ponder the holy men and women whose commemorations fall in that month.
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Curate and Succentor at Lincoln Cathedral, Curate at St John the Baptist, on the Eleventh Sunday after Trinity, 9th August 2015. +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. I was very excited this week as the Great British Bake-Off started up again. I loved the first episode – I’ve already got my favourite contestants, I know […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Succentor As I write this it is the feast of the Transfiguration, the day when the gospels report Jesus’s closest disciples being granted an experience of him which transcended anything they had encountered so far. On that mountain-top (possibly Mount Tabor), the traditional place of encounter with God (Sinai, Horeb, etc) Peter, James and John saw him for a short while in the glory he put […]
The Great Lincolnshire Exhibition continues with several events around the city. Thursday 13 August – Double bill Magna Carta: Did she die in vain? – guest lecturer Dr Jessica Nelson This talk will look at the differences between the 1215 and 1225 versions of Magna Carta, both currently on display as part of the Great Exhibition, and then explore how Magna Carta was used by people across the social scale to defend their rights and liberties.

During Lincolnshire’s Great Exhibition, there will be two ‘exclusive’ evening opportunities to visit the Medieval and Wren Libraries at Lincoln Cathedral – one of the four venues hosting the exhibition this summer. Each event will offer 25 visitors special evening access to the exhibits in the libraries, in the company of a knowledgeable guide, followed by a glass of wine or fruit juice in the Cathedral cloisters. All guests will also receive a goody-bag, which amongst other items, will include […]
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Eighth Sunday after Trinity, 26th July, 2015. The outstanding production of Jesus Christ Superstar taking place in the nave of this Cathedral at the present time has taken me back to my days at Theological College when, almost obsessively, we would listen to the LP of Jesus Christ Superstar that had just been released ahead of its stage debut. I still […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Succentor Ten days ago the Cathedral featured in the news headlines when Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, chose his lecture in the Cathedral to give the clearest hint yet of a change in interest rates. Over the coming week the Cathedral hosts nightly performances of the 1970s rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar. Both events, interestingly enough, have been sold out.
