    The news this week has been dominated by the Italian earthquake. I’m sure that our hearts go out to those who have lost everything. The Italian members of our community will be especially affected by these events but the tremors go beyond national boundaries.


    I bumped into the Head Teacher of Wetherby School in the street yesterday who told me that the British teenager killed in the earthquake was a pupil at the senior school in Notting Hill. Please keep those caught up in this tragedy in your thoughts and prayers.


    Life is always a mixture of sorrow and joy. I would like to congratulate Marion & Benjamin Bouchet-Le Bot on the birth of their daughter, Charlotte on 11 August. We look forward to welcoming her at church soon.


    Tomorrow is the Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity and we continue to work through some challenging passages from St Luke’s Gospel. Jesus uses the basic human experience of eating meals as indicative of the Kingdom. Once again the Christmas image of ‘gentle Jesus meek and mild’ takes a knock when we see Jesus, a guest at a dinner give his host a piece of his mind. There’s a fine line between being prophetic and being rude. Only if we have a rich spiritual life do we stand a chance of getting it right.


    I attach a copy of the latest Bulletin. In it you’ll see tributes to the Revd Roly Bain who died recently. He was a priest and a clown. He understood that if you are going to get away with being prophetic you also have to make people laugh.


    Following on from the successful pilgrimage to Iona last year I'm thinking about going to Italy in 2018. Ideas with Fr Michael Bowie (All Saints Margaret Street) so far include Assisi, Ravenna and Loreto. There will be a meeting on Tuesday 18 October, 7.15pm in the All Saints Margaret Street Parish Room (off the courtyard) for anyone who is interested to look at possibilities. All welcome. If you would like to come in 2018 but are unable to attend the meeting please register your interest with me. Thank you.

    St Cyprian's Day is Thursday 15 September and there will be a short festival of events on the day itself and the days after at St Cyprian’s Clarence Gate. There is a High Mass on St Cyprian's Day at 7.30pm. The Preacher will be The Ven Luke Miller, Archdeacon of London. On Friday 16 September at 6.30pm the Francis Holland School is putting on a performance of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Tickets on the door: £10. The day following (Saturday 17 September) St Cyprian's is hosting a quiz night starting at 7.00pm. Entrance is £10 and includes wine and refreshments. You are invited to form teams of six people. If you would like to bring a team or hope to join one please contact Chris Self (chris_self@btinternet.com).

    The school holidays are almost over so I hope that if you are traveling back soon then you will do so safely. I will be away for a few days this coming week so there are no midweek services this week. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow if you are in town.


    Yours in Christ


    Fr Gerald

    ‘There’s none so blind as those that see’, so the proverb goes. That’s certainly borne out by the gospel for the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity. Some of those who witnessed the signs that Jesus did often failed to appreciate that they were just that: signs. Jesus wasn’t just doing wonders. They were indications that the world was being turned upside down. The adversaries of Jesus would wreak their havoc eventually but during his ministry the people who ‘got it’ cheered him on.

     

    Holidays are in full swing so if you are away I hope that you are having a wonderful break. Gavin is away this weekend so Jethro is very kindly deputizing for him. So please sign the children in with him.

     

    When Christopher Saward, our Director of Music is away, David Bell usually deputizes for him. I learned today that David has had an accident and will be out of action for a few weeks. Please remember him in your prayers.

    I am at St Cyprian’s on Sunday and as usual I leave you in Fr Stephen’s capable hands.

     

    Yours in Christ

    Sunday is the Twelfth Sunday after Trinity and the gospel passage is one of the most challenging to preach on. Jesus sees himself as bringing division. On the face of it this isn't good news for a world where there is more than enough division already. Yet division is basic to life itself. Nothing is born unless cells have first divided in the process of conception and new life has begun. Anyone who preaches division needs to make sure that the process to which it leads is creative and not destructive.


    Many people are away currently so if you are I hope that you are having a good time. Following on from the successful pilgrimage to Iona last year I'm thinking about going to Italy in 2018.

    After the death of Fr Jaques Hamel twelve days ago it was good to see how many French Muslims went to mass last Sunday to express their solidarity with the Catholic community and to dissociate themselves with the actions of the murderers. This will go a long way to build bridges of friendship among people of good will.

    Last Sunday I preached about poverty. In our time and place I think that this is well expressed as 'defencelessness'. In the West End we are surrounded by security be it in our homes or in shops and businesses. But churches need to have open doors with no questions asked. These symbolise open Christian hearts and minds. This Sunday, the Eleventh Sunday after Trinity the theme continues. 'Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.'

    St Cyprian's Day is Thursday 15 September and there will be a short festival of events over the weekend following. On Friday 16 September at 6.30pm the Francis Holland School is putting on a performance of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Tickets on the door : £10. The day following (Saturday 17 September) St Cyprian's is hosting a quiz night starting at 7.30pm. Entrance is £10 and includes wine and refreshments.

    I attach July's Bulletin and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday. If you are away then I hope that you're having a great holiday. Would you like to write something about where you've been for the Bulletin? Its always interesting to know what folk have experienced on holiday and it often inspires others to make the same trip - especially if the children have had a great time! 


    Yours in Christ
