Glory

15. Then the whole sky filled with angels who sang, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth.” The angels left and the shepherds decided to go and see the baby.


Music can lift my spirit and take my whole being somewhere unexpected. What is your favourite piece of music? Does it inspire or well up melancholy into you very being. These angels singing must have been all your top ten rolled into one. Not one but a veritable host singing God’s praise; really professional worship, top draw. The shepherds so moved they left there sheep to view the child.

What will draw you from worship to action today’s?

Words Worth Thinking About.

Sam Wells told clergy at the Wakefield Diocesan Clergy Conference that there were three types of power; the power of silence, the power of words and the power of touch.

He spoke to a rarefied group of individuals:

“Your first duty as a priest is to save your own soul.” The second foundation of ministry is just as eschatological but nothing like so personal. It pictures judgement day and Christ the King in glory, and asks the question, “What will we say to him if we stand before him without the others?”

This is the paradoxical foundation of ministry. Your first duty is to save your own soul. But ask yourself what he will say to you if you go to him without the others.

His whole lecture was breathtaking and you could have heard a pin drop as he spoke and shared his insight.
