THIS WEEK’S MEDITATION:

Who would be a Prime Minister, especially in this pandemic! He can’t do right for wrong.  In the last 72 hours, huge changes have been announced to protect the country even though those in Spain will be annoyed, to say nothing of the Muslims in the North-West, about to celebrate Eid together. Rudderless?  Based on the science? Such are the reactions to our present course through the pandemic. But the pandemic itself has swept away so much of what we rely upon: routines, jobs, income, friendships – even the lives of loved ones.  Our Prime minister, exuberant as always, will have had cause to consider the foundations of his own life as he lay in his hospital bed whilst others did for him what he would not himself do.

 

Where then can we look for security? Houses, friends, investments in the end will all be swept away.

Adherents to the major faiths have always stated their reliance upon God, their rock. When all else is stripped away, what is left?  Some might answer, ‘nothing’, ‘oblivion’. I can’t go that far simply because the glory and intricacy of this life as we know it must have some intelligent force behind it – a force with a purpose.  For Christians, that purpose is to live with and depend on the knowledge of God.

 

During this pandemic, many of us have been praying the late night Office of Compline.  One of its regular psalms is Psalm 91 which stresses dependence upon God. ”Thou are my hope and my stronghold. My God, in him will I trust.” Not a bad thought to carry off to bed with!

 

God expresses his concern for us in many ways: though politicians, scientists, family and so many others upon which our daily lives depend.  But these are stripped away as we pass through life. Happy the person who can develop that dependence upon God along-side all these other securities! They will fade but God remains our rock.

MEDITATION:

I am not the best organised person and consequently spend (waste?) a great deal of time looking for things that never seem to be in the right place. Generally the thing I am looking for is something simple like a birthday card that I know I bought ages ago or a favourite mug. But sometimes the thing is really important, such as the insurance policies or a bill which needs paying.

You know what it’s like. You begin looking in the obvious places, then the maybe- places and eventually anywhere with a rising degree of panic. And so much time has passed but the sense of relief when it is found is almost overwhelming.

Many people find that they are unhappy with the way of life they live and want something more and better. During the lockdown situation many found themselves taking stock of their lives and wondering if indeed there was more than they had previously thought was sufficient. Many spend time searching within their hearts.

Jesus told stories about searching for the greatest treasure and then giving up everything to attain it. The first disciples left their families, homes and jobs to follow Christ because they believed they had found in him the deepest meaning for life and union with God. Many were persecuted and gave up their lives. What would we give up to follow Jesus?

Prayer: Help us to search for you, O Lord, and to follow you wherever you take us. Amen.

TODAY’S MEDITATION

Home schooling must be a nightmare for some families!  Thank goodness I am beyond that.  Socializing our children was bad enough. I can’t imagine trying to teach them physics!  ‘A prophet is not without honour, except in his own country’. There are many things that we cannot give our own family – surgery, dental care perhaps – but teaching is often one of them. Formal teaching anyway. It is a great skill. At the start of the lockdown, Professor Brian Cox remarked about the impossibility of home-schooling his own children.

 

Yet the actions of parents in supporting their children’s education is so important. It adds to the work of the authorized teacher. Those small acts like providing breakfast at the right time, supplying paper, a laptop, encouragement after an hour’s work around the kitchen table.  These all add to the work of the teacher.

 

And so, do those who support the life of faith. It is an extension of God’s work in growing the kingdom here on earth. There is a significant level of commitment involved in brass cleaning, mowing the churchyard, welcoming back the worshipper.  It encourages those who identify closely with the work of Christ and should not be overlooked. Who knows how God works through these simple tasks? I for one find massive encouragement therein.

TODAY’S MEDITATION

In the church calendar we are now in Ordinary time but there is nothing ordinary about the times through which we are living just now. From the difficulties which the coronavirus has portrayed, there has been a great revival of the nature of a village. In olden times everyone would know everyone else and although this was not always a good thing (even the bad things were known!) people were very involved with each other.

There has been a renewal of this in the way so many people have been prepared to reach out and help others and show a caring attitude to those they may not have spoken to before. St Matthew records that Jesus “.. saw the crowds and had compassion on them because they were worried and helpless.” So many people have followed Christ’s example at this time and helped those who are “worried and helpless”.  Hopefully, this will continue far beyond this time and become a way of life and ordinary time will continue to be extraordinary time.

Prayer: Lord, we thank you for those who show kindness, for those who go the extra mile and whose kindness has changed lives. We pray for those who have received kindness and those who have been blessed beyond their expectations. Lord, the source of all kindness, fill the earth with your love.

TODAY’S MEDITATION

Plants left on the windowsill in this hot weather are in danger of baking – as are young plants in the ground.  I have just revived some precious runner-bean plants which have been left for more than a day without water. With water they flourish!  It is a miracle how those limp specimens change their nature when given water to drink!

So God acts in our world to bring out the best in us and in his creation. He acts mostly through normal channels to provide for us.  Where would be without water?  However, water is not one of the symbols of the Holy Spirit commonly used in the bible.  The Spirit is normally depicted as breath (critical for life) or wind (with violent effects) or fire (which both warms and purifies). All of these symbols were present at that first Pentecost. But we identify water with baptism and new life because water was so scarce in the Middle East where Christianity was born. If you were close to water, then there was a chance of survival.

What aids our survival today?  We are in the middle of a drought which is not too critical for us in Rutland – unless you are a farmer.  We are also in the middle of a pandemic, so water is essential for washing our hands, as is clean air. And the air is clearer now than it has been for years everywhere in the world.  This change has come at some cost both financially and in human life.  What will we passionately wish to hang onto in the ‘new normal’ when it comes?  What vehicle brings the unifying power of God closer to us? How will your life-style change to allow God’s Holy Spirit greater access to you?

Today’s Meditation:

 

ASCENSION

 

Many of you will remember the sketch by John Cleese, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbet about class in 1966 about looking down on and looking up to other people (probably not politically correct now). There has always been a sense that anyone who is above us either at work or in other hierarchical institutions somehow has power and authority. We talk about “putting someone on a pedestal”.

Jesus had appeared to his disciples after the Resurrection but this was not a situation which could continue. He had been with them and now it was time to leave. He took some of them onto the Mount of Olives and there ascended away from them, a sign of divinity.

 

The disciples could have been bereft once again at the loss but Jesus had told them that he would not leave them comfortless and until the Holy Spirit came to help them. The disciples were energized because Jesus was their friend as well as their King.

 

We, too, may be feeling bereft at this time; tensions in families and loneliness and despair for others. Jesus is still a friend and is with us as he was with the disciples, waiting for us and willing to comfort us.

 

Loving Lord, we look for you in heaven and wait for you on earth. Give to all who wait for you, the joy of approaching you, King but friend and by our side. Amen.

MORCOTT: Well done everyone who celebrated VE Day 75 with Operation Bunting Up – we strung some along the churchyard wall – and at 3pm tea parties. It is good to see the benches in the churchyard used for reflection, and that people have taken some of the prayers pinned to the noticeboard in the church porch. We hope to have a Foodbank Box in the church porch soon.

SOUTH LUFFENHAM: Another thank you – three tubs of food collected for the Rutland Foodbank this week.

We celebrate the anniversary of two baptisms – James (Jay and Michael’s son) was baptised a year ago on Tuesday and Joan’s grandson Oscar two years ago on Wednesday. 

Last Sunday we put out colouring sheets of flags and bunting for people to use in their VE Day decorations. This Sunday we will be giving away sunflower seeds – Seeds of Hope – help yourself, from the green, if you are passing on Sunday. 

TODAY’S MEDITATION:

This is a time of bewilderment for us all. It gives birth to anxiety, fear, depression and worse. Such was the feeling among the friends of Jesus after the crucifixion as their hopes of a better life seem to be dashed. How should they now live their lives? How may we?

 St. John in today’s gospel (14.1 – 14) throws them a lifeline, reminding them that they already walked in the Jewish tradition. It told them which way to go but Jesus came and led them by the hand. He did not tell them the way from a distance; he led them by the hand and still does. Jesus is the Way.

And we are always searching for truth – at least truth which will fit into our world view. Moral values cannot be declaimed from pulpits or Downing Street rostrums. There is every danger that it will sound hollow. Rather it has to be lived, explored and acknowledged among us and that always demands change for no-one of us can encapsulate all truth. We need to give God wiggle-room! Jesus is the Truth.

And then there is life, even in the lockdown.  It’s not a matter of breadth but depth. We will know some of those events in our own lives which act like lightning conductors or scales falling from our eyes revealing life in all its fullness. Some last; Jesus walks with us forever. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

MEDITATION

We live in a beautiful part of the world and are privileged to be able to watch the lambs in Spring. Sheep are often mentioned in the Bible and the 23rd Psalm The Lord is my shepherd is such a comforting piece used at many services. Jesus used the picture of sheep in some of his stories and tells how the sheep would know the voice of their shepherd and would follow him only. In the confirmation service the words “He has called you by name” are so important.

 

In this strange time, God is not elsewhere; he is with us and cares what is happening to each one of us whether we are someone who can help others or whether we are alone. He has a plan for each one of us and will speak to us if we allow ourselves to listen to him. He calls us by name because each one of us is special to him and he cares. Do we listen to him to find out what he wants us to do or do we bombard him with words so that he does not get a word in?

 

Prayer: Loving Lord, help us to listen to you and find your will for us. Give us the strength to follow in your way. Amen.   Ann Robinson

Here is a short meditation extract for Palm Sunday but first you might want to click and watch this short Pam Sunday video – great for children of any age! Called Holy Moly! It goes on to tell the story of Maundy Thursday too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipAcuR-NiYc

You are in Jerusalem – a crowd is gathering. As you peer down the road you see them coming, men, women, a few children their sandals kicking up dust in the dry air. One man is riding, the donkey just a little small, so his long legs drag in the dust.  The stranger standing next to you points and yells, “There he is.”

Your eyes follow the line of his pointing finger. You ask, “On the donkey, is that Jesus on the donkey.”   The stranger nods. As they approach people around you cut palms from the trees and wave them. A chant rises from the watchers. “Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna, to the son of David.” Are you joining them or standing back and just watching?   A victorious king rides a donkey as he returns to his city. What victory is Jesus celebrating?   The little party passes directly in front of you. Your eyes are drawn to Jesus. He turns his head. Your eyes meet and hold their gaze.  What message are you receiving from Jesus? What would you like to tell him?  The moment is fleeting. He smiles and turns to someone else. In minutes the parade is over. Did you wave your flag?   As you watch the little band of people pass through the gates, you realize the sun has dropped even lower. They disappear from view. How are you feeling now? What will you tell your friends about this encounter?
