Easter Sunday followed by Easter 3 & 4
This is an offering reflecting on the rise of white supremacist thinking in the light of Palm Sunday
October was a busy month which culminated in my 1st wedding anniversary which Alison and I spent at Lake Rotoiti.
The September sermon was the finish of the Creation series for Year B at Scots. The next one follows the Year B lectionary reading from Mark and then from Job, both preached at St Stephen’s.
The final of the four was at a service that was celebrating the volunteers who have worked for Scots in the op shops and other areas of service.

A response to the humanitarian crisis unfolding so far away from us yet in the Season of Creation being reminded of it through the theme of Humanity Sunday.
I came across the starting reflection on deafness some years ago and saved it without noting the source. A number of folk with hearing aids or deteriorating hearing at the service appreciated that addressing of how they sometimes feel.
On 30 August we had a choral service at St Stephen’s and used the approaching Seasons of Creation as a starting point.
I used an image out of my classical music education to describe the working of God in creation.
Reading around, a recent writer on SciBlogs eschewed such imagery because String Theory which underlies the picture is just a theory and hasn’t yet been demonstrated.
I am more interested in finding images that spark the imagination. As Richard Rohr puts it “We are made for transcendence and endless horizons…” and my task is to help find the image that helps make sense of it all.
