July is Mobile Phone Courtesy Month

July is Mobile Phone Courtesy Month

Therefore here are a few tips…

We all know about this issue. Especially when we are on a bus, train or in any other public place because we become an audience to someone else’s conversation.

Sometimes when we speak on a mobile phone we forget our manners!

Therefore do try to make the most of Mobile Phone Courtesy Month. You can do so if you follow these tips about mobile phone etiquette:

– When you are in a meeting: don’t check your phone constantly for texts and emails. But do concentrate on the people you are with.
– In a court, official room, theatre, or place of worship set your mobile phone to silent or vibrate
– Don’t embarrass yourself… If you know you are going to make an intense emotional call save it for when you are somewhere private. The public at large have no need to know about your relationship issues. That is unless you are a celebrity of course!
– Do check your personal volume levels. It is very easy to start shouting into your phone. Instead speak softly and everyone in your vicinity will enjoy the peace and quiet. They will also appreciate your good manners.

The Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 25 – 37)

I had a challenge finding a hymn for this one.  The bad news is that I could not find anything from CH4 or Mission Praise to describe the story.  After the service, I did have a thought and my immediate reaction was why did I not think of that earlier.   But more about that later.

Therefore, I searched and the best I could find was…

CH4 562 Through the Love of God our Saviour verse 2 and CH4 231 that is verse 2.  Interestingly both can be sung to tune 562 ‘All through the night’

Verse 2 of CH4 562

2 Though we pass through tribulation,
all will be well.
Ours is such a full salvation,
all, all is well.
Happy, still in God confiding,
fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
holy, through the Spirit’s guiding,
all must be well.

Verse 2 of CH4 231
Please see the words of verse 2 here ‘For the fruit of all creation’

The two hymns – that is one verse each were sung as the Anthem

Below is the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke 10:25-37 King James Version (KJV) of the Bible.

25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

27 And he answering said ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself’.

28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise, a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

37 And he said He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Our minister highlighted the importance of willing hands.  That is willing hands that God can use in the time of an emergency,  In this case, those helping/willing hands came from a Good Samaritan (The Samaritans were not liked by the population in those days).

Now, what was the hymn I had forgotten about?   Simply, it was “He put in the oil and the wine”.   You can hear it here.

 

Rock of Ages Cleft for Me – 1 Kings 19:1-18

These are the words that I needed from Rock of Ages Cleft for Me. 

That is verses 2 and 3…

“Not the labour of my hands
Can fulfil Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All could never sin erase,
Thou must save, and save by grace.

Nothing in my hands I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress,
Helpless, look to Thee for grace:
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Savior, or I die.”

If you look at Church Hymnary 4  CH4 hymn 554 you will find it is set to the tune Petra.  I must say not one of my favourite tunes – but the Late Rev. Bob White always reminded me that these tunes were the pop songs of the day.  Sadly one of a set of tunes that I struggle to look at as a pop song.  For me, it sounds like a dirge.   Other people may well enjoy, but it is not in my top 10.

As usual, I sent an email to our choir members.   I mentioned that words also fit the tune for the carol  ‘As with Gladness men of old’.  Secretly, I was hoping this would be ok.

Quickly, I received an email back – we know the tune.    ‘Oh dear’,  I thought.  Nothing for it, but I will try and rearrange Petra, perhaps break the chords or add a variation in the bass.

Today I arrived at church for the choir practice.   Played the tune Petra, it was not recognised, by anyone.   Nothing to do with the arrangement!  I then checked the CH3 hymnary and the tune was Petra. – it was there again!   Only, one more source was left…   Mission Praise.  There I found the tune Toplady and that was a perfect match.   Do have a  look at Mission Praise MP 582 (ii).  To my mind much superior to Petra.   Had to transpose by two semitones – but the organ magically did all that for me!

112 Which Service Do You Need…

This is a poem inspired by the images of Fife beaches and thoughts of BREXIT

Like all my poems, there is little rhyme, rhythm, metre and the words may defy logic.

Written after a minor accident on Thursday evening.  That is using one finger on a mobile phone.   Other fingers bruised.

We live on an island.
No, not of the desert kind
An island that is not one
Except in the beauty of my mind

Beauty is hidden
not seen by the many,
but only the few

A pleasing pleasure,
the blue clouds of peace.
A beauty that beams light,
that laps the storms of the sea
Are those waters part of the fleece?
And does it destroy their coming plight

So why do we fight
To destroy the float of white wool?
Better to do thine will every night
Why ignore the gift of God and his might?
As it is something precious that mixes, melts and multiplies his light

Random drops of heavenly manna
Drops that dance like hot snowflakes and not a spanner
Snowflakes that land on a raucous world.
And how I do love Apple Pie,
Snowflakes, Apple,  and the planet wearing a mandatory bow tie.
All, of course, a delight to my eye

Yet in itself, the world is a bit,
a very small shot, a very small mitt
Yes – It is Minuscule and Mountain crushing
But is all well and is all fit?

Planet earth is Yes…
And it will, yes it will survive
But what is more beautiful

Better than the world and something that will revive

Better than this island
Surely, it must be
Yes… An island of Paradise.
One that is alive

A Paradise that lives, lives inside.
A Paradise of life
An Island within itself that cannot hide

An isle of the Great with some strife

The Great United people, that have boats near a buoy
The United In a Kingdom full of joy
Sadly, not for the many but the few.
And nearly everything is broken and little is new.

Split by discord,
a broken chord of love.
What do we do? 

Is it an emergency

                 Dial 112

No!   I made a mistake – sorry operator

But…  Mirror, Mirror on the wall who is the most beautiful of them all…

The most beautiful is within…
“it is within”
“Within What?”
“Within the innards”
“Within What?”
“Within the innards” 

The magic of  inside
explored by a naive surgeon’s knife
The magic of you plus

The magic of two beaches in Fife
The magic of a bride walking down the aisle
of golden sand to become a wife

But can we Ignite that passionate spark?

Remember we are the many and not the few”.

But what are we?
We are the people
But who are the many?
We the people are the many
Where are the few?
That is the mystery…
And how do we grow and find out what is true?

All these questions and there is someone in the know
There is only one thing to do…
Speak to someone to release your life and make it go
and he will help you no matter even when you feel low…

Beaches at Milesnilk by Aunty Ana Gram

Faith – Hebrews 11 – Joshua fought the battle of Jericho

I am preparing for a prayer meeting tonight and looking for something to read before prayer.  On that note, Hebrews 11 comes to mind.  So here goes…

1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper (comely – pleasant to look at) child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

 

Joshua fought the battle of Jericho see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3QUS4B0iaM   and see… https://hymnary.org/text/you_may_talk_about_the_men_of_gideon

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.

34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

35 Women received their dead raised to life again: 

If you are observant you will notice that I have missed something.   And yes you are right.  It is a final couple of verses in Hebrews 11.  These should be here to provide balance and the full story about faith.

and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect (since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect). 

Cycle and Pedestrian Routes info

Subject Cycle and Pedestrian Paths in general Scotland

  1. Cycle and pedestrian paths are 100% funded by Sustrans (a UK wide charity based at Bristol that supports cyclists).
  2. Sustrans design these routes with the cyclist in mind.  That is to encourage cycling and exercise.
  3. My comment… There is also another group that use the routes.   That is pedestrians,  I must say that any General Practitioner recommends walking as a means of exercise.  Therefore, in a mixed-use environment, the safety of all users need to be considered, not just cyclists.  Therefore, there should be clear instructions to cyclists and pedestrians to take care on these traffic ways.  This is important as it is not the usual custom for cyclists to ride in what could be considered a pedestrian space.
  4. It is also noted that on a Sunday on one recently upgraded Sustrans cycle/pedestrian path at about 9:40 am a cyclist came at speed on a pathway towards some pedestrian traffic lights.  At that day and that time, there were no others on the pathway. (I suspect but don’t know but that the route may have been designed to 18mph standards  – here there should also be a sign asking cyclists and pedestrians to take care).  More markings are needed on any such pathways to make clear the mixed usage.

The earth for ever is the Lord’s (Psalm 24)

The earth for ever is the Lord’s (Psalm 24)
Hymn Written by Isaac Watts 17 July 1674 to 25 November 1748
Tune Amazing Grace

The earth for ever is the Lord’s,
With Adam’s num’rous race;
He raised its arches o’er the floods,
And built it on the seas.

But who among the sons of men
May visit thine abode?
He that has hands from mischief clean,
Whose heart is right with God.

This is the man may rise and take
The blessings of his grace;
This is the lot of those that seek
The God of Jacob’s face.

Now let our souls’ immortal powers
To meet the Lord prepare,
Lift up their everlasting doors,
The King of glory’s near.

The King of glory! who can tell
The wonders of his might?
He rules the nations; but to dwell
With saints is his delight

ScotRail – Delays for April 2019

Not many people understand the frustration, heartache, and hassle when the trains are late. 

The odd glitch of course with any mode of transport is acceptable. 

Below you will see a long list of late train times for the month. 

But the image here is to highlight the bit I just can’t catch easily.  That is the continual reduction of rail transport carriages at peak time at the busy rail stations.  Image courtesy of James Henderson on Twitter.

Three carriage service reduced to two carriages almost daily see:

Abridged version Come, ye faithful, raise the strain (7,6,7,6, D) Tune Ellacombe Hosanna Loud Hosanna CH4 367  … Translated by John Mason Neale, born in Conduit Street, London, on Jan. 24, 1818.  Written by John of Damascus, St. The last but one of the Fathers of the Greek Church, and the greatest of her poets.  Words set to Ellacombe by Charles Litster April 2019.

Come, ye faithful, raise the strain
of triumphant gladness;
God has– brought his Israel
in-to.. joy from sadness;
loosed from Pharaoh’s bit-ter.. yoke
Jacob’s sons and dau-ght-ers;
He let  them pass with feet not wet
through th-e Red Sea waters.

“Alleluia!” now we do cry
to ou-r King immortal,
who, tri-umph-antl-y did burst the bars
of the to-mb’s dark portal;
“Alleluia!” with the So-on…,  (Son)
We praise God the Father now,
“Alleluia!” yet aga-in
to the Spirit raising.

The Song of Moses and Miriam

Moses pointing to a tanlet of stoneMoses:

Story from King James version of the Bible Exodus 15:1-12

 

 

15 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spoke, saying,

‘I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and song, and he has become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.

Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea.

The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

And in the greatness of thine excellency, thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

And with the blast of thy nostrils, the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11 Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

12 Thou stretches out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.”

Closest song Come, ye faithful, raise the strain (7,6,7,6, D) Tune Ellacombe Hosanna Loud Hosanna CH4 367  … Translated by John Mason Neale, born in Conduit Street, London, on Jan. 24, 1818.  Written by John of Damascus, St. The last but one of the Fathers of the Greek Church, and the greatest of her poets

Words below, but there is unfinished work here for me to arrange words to the tune.

1  Come, ye faithful, raise the strain
of triumphant gladness;
God hath brought his Israel
into joy from sadness;
loosed from Pharaoh’s bitter yoke
Jacob’s sons and daughters;
led them with unmoistened foot
through the Red Sea waters.

2 ‘Tis the spring of souls today;
Christ hath burst his prison,
and from three days’ sleep in death
as a sun hath risen;
all the winter of our sins,
long and dark, is flying
from his light, to whom we give
laud and praise undying.

3 Now the queen of seasons, bright
with the day of splendour,
with the royal feast of feasts,
comes its joy to render;
comes to glad Jerusalem,
who with true affection
welcomes in unwearied strains
Jesus’ resurrection.

4 Neither might the gates of death,
nor the tomb’s dark portal,
nor the watchers, nor the seal
hold thee as a mortal:
but today amidst thine own
thou didst stand, bestowing
thine own peace, which evermore
passeth human knowing.

5 “Alleluia!” now we cry
to our King immortal,
who, triumphant, burst the bars
of the tomb’s dark portal;
“Alleluia!” with the Son,
God the Father praising;
“Alleluia!” yet again
to the Spirit raising.
