Everyday God

25th February 2015


Everyday God a short book by Father George Guiver of the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield, West Yorkshire

‘The Creed starts, I believe in….’. It does not start ‘I believe that…’ In other words it does not ask us for an opinion about ideas. It is an invitation to trust a person’. To trust a person, we need to know them. To know God we need to talk with him in prayer as we would to anyone we are trying to get to know.

George Guiver puts things in such a practical manner, so much sensible & easily understood advice.

The next few day focus on some of the themes from this approachable and accessible book.

All Things New

12th February 2014


Anna’s and Simeon’s prophecies share a note of hope and expectation, along with declarations that in this child God’s promise is moving into realisation.

Going back to the beginning of Epiphany there was a showing of rich and poor, learned and ordinary, kingship, worship and death. Glimpses of who and what Jesus is to become.

This series of thoughts ends with the mature, with male and female the promise of hope and expectation.

Whatever your gender or status etc. God’s love makes all things new and all things possible.

A wedding, a celebration, guests including Jesus, his disciples and his mother. Ordinary, ordinary ordinary! Again Jesus in a normal situation and yet showing something new

The Son of God and sharer in humanity.

Yes, Jesus shared wine, dance and celebrated at a wedding

Ordinary Lives.

I had the honour of attending an awards ceremony – not a big flash national or BAFTA etc. This was a local community gathering celebrating the ordinary.

Teachers, emergency services, musicians, unsung sportsmen, local activists and fund raisers all from the Huddersfield area.

The Huddersfield Examiner Community Awards celebrates the extra – ordinary done by the ordinary who actually do not seek any recognition.
