Missing months #1 27 Sept – 18 Oct





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.

August 30

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.
