A previous Dean of this cathedral is reputed to have described a sermon in a rather pithy phrase: "A sermon must warm the heart, inform the mind and move the will." That I attribute to Tim Raphael and I hope I have quoted him correctly.

However there are many kinds of sermons - and mostly when I place a sermon in this blog I expect it will be for a Sunday Eucharist and reflect my own engagement with scripture and the question of how that mystery about which scriptures turn connects with my own life and the questions that hold me - whether in perplexity, despair or delight.
