SOME SIMPLE THOUGHTS

Every story has 3 sides – yours, mine and the facts!

A great missionary used to say :-                                                                                           Some people want to live within the sound of a Church or Chapel Bell –  but I want to run a Rescue Centre at the gates of hell!!

CONCERT – PIPES MEET ORGAN

On 4th August at 7:30pm at Christ Church, Huntly there will be the return visit of the German duo “Pipe meets Organ”. Come and listen to their unique combination of European pipes and organ music. Entrance by donation at the door on the evening.

CONCERT AT HUNTLY – A MUSICAL TREAT

There will be a concert “Light Music for a Summer’s Evening’ played on a range of Recorders by an Ensemble of seven led by Ed Friday, a local musician.

The concert will be held at Auchanachie near Huntly on Saturday 12th August at 7pm.

Tickets, by a donation of £12.50 include refreshments and will be available soon from Pippy McEwen.  For tickets, directions and further information contact  j.mcewen@tiscali.co.uk and the telephone number is 01466 760 742.

By the way – do forget the image of recorders being used to learn on at school with all the angst involved, the squeaks, whistles and odd notes.  I have been to a Recorder Concert and the range of instruments and the sound they make is truly wonderful.   Do come to this concert and prepare to be moved and amazed!!

NEW VIDEO – WELCOME TO THE SEC

The Scottish Episcopal Church has just produced a new video to introduce and welcome people to who and what we are.   I thought I recognised the dulcet tones of our own Bishop Mark on the sound track.   Do have a look and listen to this video.   You will find it encouraging and perhaps you could point others to it.  The link is here:  http://tinyurl.com/y8m3oo68

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO POLITICS

Sitting up all night watching the election results was (depending upon your political colours)  a bit like heaven and hell – I don’t think I have recovered yet.   Here is a cartoon to cheer you up and below that a link to an article which, not matter who you voted for, will make you laugh.

Millions of words have been written about the general election and its aftermath.   Jeremy and Theresa have been discussed at length.  An extremely funny article about it all comes from the New Yorker – but it is well worth reading and it’s even printed in English!!  – perhaps it could replace the sermon on Sunday (grin).  There are some adverts on the web page so just keep scrolling down to follow the story.   Click on the link below or it can be read here

OUR RESPONSE TO TERROR ATTACKS

There is a very interesting article on the SEC Inspires Website written by Rev Phillip Blackledge on his personal response to terror attacks.   I found it very helpful and hope it will resonate with you too.   You can read it by clicking on this link –   http://pisky.scot

 

 

A THOUGHT TO START YOUR WEEK

Here’s a thought to start the week and a cartoon below to give you a chuckle.   There was a boy with five loaves and two fish – he willingly gave them to the Apostles.  You may know this story very well – but look at it again.     But for that boy, Jesus may not have Continue reading
