Around the Table: a Communion sermon. Sunday 24 September 2017

Scripture Readings: Romans 12:1-8

Matthew 16:13-20

Around the Table

Communion
In many ways, these last few weeks have been a time of new beginnings for me- and the weeks ahead are also going to be full of new beginnings. Today is another first- the first time I’ve led a Communion service here at St Stephen’s (I led the Communion at Old High last month).
After I had been off for a few months, I realised how much I was missing the Sacrament. So I was grateful to our Pastoral Assistant, Rev Arthur Sinclair, came to the Manse and led a Communion service there with me, my wife, Katharina, and our elder, Andy Pyott. Our living room coffee table became, for us, the Table of the Lord, and I was reminded that even if I couldn’t get to the building, I was still part of the Church.

Cherish the light! Sermon for The Kirking of the Council, 10 September 2017

Order of service

Scripture Readings: Philippians 4.4-9
Matthew 5.1-16
Cherish the light
In the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.

On the 20 July 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin approached the surface of the moon in their fragile Lunar Module, the Eagle. It was a fraught descent. Aldrin was calling out computer data to Armstrong as they approached, but the computer played up- and only cool heads meant that the landing was not abandoned. And as he approached the surface, Armstrong spotted that their landing site was strewn with boulders the size of small cars. In his attempt to find a clear site to land, Armstrong almost used up all his fuel reserves, which would have meant that they could not return home, or crashed among the boulders.
