This Sunday we met for our Parish Eucharist at 10 am at the end of a week in which our Country has taken a momentous decision. It was most appropriate that today the Gospel reading was the story of the Good Samaritan, and Father Stephen took up this theme in his sermon. He explained that the Samaritans were close relatives of the Jews, but had remained in Israel and intermarried with the local peoples when the majority of the children of Israel had been deported to Babylon. On their return the Samaritans were held as different and pagan, causing a dramatic split. It was however the Samaritan that came to the aid of the injured man, not the religious Jewish passers by. What a good lesson for caring and loving between people who see themselves as different!
The Choir sang Brother James' Air as the Anthem.
