Don't let school get between parents and children - Draft post from 29th August 2012


This draft post only had a title, but I am posting that title because it is important. Years ago, around 1989 or 1990 we lived in Hackney and went to a church called St John of Jerusalem. We sang in the choir which meant rehearsals and several services a week. So I saw the preaching every time.

The priest there only preached once in all the time I was there. Others preached instead. He walked up and down the aisle and made the briefest of sermons. Essentially, don;t let anything, ANYTHING, get between you and God.

Note that he did not discuss what that weighty word God might or might not mean, for him or for anyone else, just focused on the issue of separation and togetherness in that one warning from the heart.

As with his fragment of a sermon, so with pretty much everything in life, but replace the word God with whatever things mean much to you.

All Saints - One Strike

I love this black and white film, uncompromising, clear, simple, focusing on the faces
