I.  The Lord Jesus, the Only begotten of the Father, Co-eternal with His Parent, like Him Invisible, like Him Omnipotent, as God Equal to Him, became Man for us, as you know, and have received, and hold fast in faith; and though He took to Himself a human form, He did not give up the divine.  Omnipotence was veiled; infirmity made manifest.  He was born, as you have come to know, that we might be reborn.  He died, that we might not die for ever.  And straightaway, that is, on the third day, He rose again from the dead; assuring us that we too shall rise on the last day.
He showed Himself to His Disciples: that…

This is one of my more challenging sermons so as the deacon says:- “Wisdom, let us attend!”
There is a Latin word, secta, (fem.) which sounds the same but has two different meanings: a following and a cut; from which we get the English words sequence, as in one thing following another and secateur as in pruning the roses.  The word “sect” borrows from both meanings.  A sect is a religious or philosophical group which follows a teaching of its own, cut away from the parent body and resulting in schism.  In choosing its own path of doctrine it isolates itself from the parent body which maintains a more fulsome and…

The Saints are a great blessing to us because by their prayers and the witness of their lives it becomes easier for us to become Saints as well.

Sorting out the Mess
(background to St. Theodore of Tarsus of Tarsus and Canterbury for a somewhat different audio sermon)

Our Charitable Trust here at St. Aidan’s is dedicated to one of many Theodores in the Church’s Calendar, in this case a man from our holy Antiochian see, the first and only Greek speaker to be elected Archbishop of Canterbury.  St. Theodore was born in the same city, Tarsus, as was St Paul, and like him his missionary work crossed continents.  Here in Britain he succeeded in bringing together into harmony all the scattered jurisdictions of the Church into one in seventh century England. …

Our thoughts really do have an impact on our world. Negative thoughts about family members or fellow employees change our relationships. If we dislike someone at work and allow ourselves to think poorly of them, they are likely to fulfill our low expectations. If we pray for them and ask God to bless them, while asking the Lord to bless our interaction with them, they become changed for the good and so do we.

We’ve all heard the image of the one person whose cup is half empty, while the other person’s cup is half full. The former person is likely to go through life with unfulfilled goals, while the latter will see their world…
