O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy;  increase 
andmultiply upon us your mercy;  that, with you as our ruler and guide we may so pass through things 
temporal that we lose not our hold on things eternal;  grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus 
Christ’s sake, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. 
Amen.

JANICE AND DAVID would like to thank the congregation in St. Catharine’s who were wonderful when she collapsed.  Also all those in the other churches who have rung, e-mailed and prayed for her.   The paramedics and the staff at A.& E. Ninewells were so caring and professional.   
Janice is OK (no heart problems) but tired and taking it easy for a few days.

Those who make religion their god will not have God for their religion
           Thomas Erskine of Linlathen

The Christians say that God has done miracles.   The modern world, even when it
believes in God does not.   It  thinks God would not do that sort of thing.  Have we
any reason for supposing that the modern world is right?    I agree that the sort of
God conceived by the ‘popular’ religion of our own times would almost certainly 
work no miracles.   The question is whether that popular religion is at all likely to be
true.


I call it ‘religion’ advisedly.   We who defend Christianity find ourselves constantly
opposed not by the irreligion of our hearers but by their real religion.   Speak about
beauty, truth and goodness, or about a God who is simply the indwelling principle
of these three, speak about a great spiritual force pervading all things, a common
mind of which we are all parts, a pool of generalised spirituality to which we can
all flow, and you will command friendly interest.   But the temperature drops as
soon as you mention a God who has purposes and performs particular actions, who
does one thing and not another, a concrete, choosing, commanding, prohibiting
God with a determinate character.   People become embarrassed or angry.
Such a conception seems to them primitive and crude and even irreverent.
The popular ‘religion’ excludes miracles because it excludes the ‘living God’ of
Christianity and believes instead in a kind of God who obviously would not do miracles,
or indeed anything else.
