Three Hours

Well that became a sort of milestone for me – never having done the full three hours before.  Once I got over my irrational fear of having no material left after an hour and a half – I was all right.  I suppose what is different is the fact of having such an enormous canvas to work on.  That does make it possible to do things – to create moods and to vary pace – in a way which is impossible within the everyday constraints of worship and preaching.  But, in my heart of hearts, I still prefer the broadcasting challenge of three minutes, no more, no less.  And if you can’t say it with economy  ……


  1. I thought Friday was very good. The whole thing was packed with very meaty content. Thank you for giving me a lot to think about.

  2. Thank you for your leadership during the worship yesterday, I found your sermons continually interesting and thought-provoking. What had a particular impact for me was your comments on the need to take up the cross and to follow a difficult and challenging path as christians.I also appreciated the opportunities for quiet reflection. I feel that sometimes having more time and space for worship helps in entering a contemplative state and freeing the mind from the usual distractions which so easily arise. Sarah
