The weather was glorious for our May pilgrimage and all 13 of us made it discovering 'God Moments' on the way. Will it be like this in September? Here we are crossing Hengistbury Head heading for Christchurch Priory.


 

THIS MONTH'S REFLECTION   by Tom

                       TOM'S NEW BOOK

     Singing the Lord's Song in a Strange Land

                               BABYLON

Britain once had an empire. The militant patriotism which created it is now gone. Today we serve the god of consumerism and worship him in our cathedral-like shopping malls. Babylon had its ziggurats. In London we demonstrate our delight in the money god in the profusion of towering skyscrapers monstrously designed to shock and awe. Many are built with Russian, Arab and Chinese money. Their plush apartments stand empty most of the time while London’s teachers, nurses, police officers and refuse collectors are forced to commute 20 or 30 miles each day.

Babylon is both a city and a whore. It’s a term used to signify luxury, sensuality, sexuality, seduction and allure. Although her appearance in the book of Revelation is magnificent (Rev.17), she is not to be trusted because she rides upon a beast of corruption. She is a celebrity who loves to be looked at yet takes even greater delight in gazing at herself. She is the mythological origin of the ‘selfie’. The message of Revelation is clear. Beware lest you are beguiled by her charms and drawn into the emptiness which she personifies. .

 LAST MONTH'S REFLECTION by Tom 

                    Summary of my book

The whole world is passing through a huge paradigm shift the likes of which have not been seen for generations. What is the Holy Spirit saying to the Churches in Britain and to the Methodist Church in particular?

The author contends that Britain is a modern Babylon where mammon reigns. The Church has unconsciously absorbed the values of Babylon into its structures and strategies with the result that it has ceased to be prophetic. It has become a public utility offering cheap grace to a consumer public looking for peace and security in troubled times.
