Reflection by The Rev. Ross Bliss

We learn something important about Jesus from Luke’s account of his return to Galilee. His reading from Isaiah in his local synagogue was one of his most outrageous pronouncements – not only did he proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour, but he claimed his own identity as the anointed one. We learn here that Jesus is not just anyone.

Reflection by Dean Peter Elliott

Angels, harvests, healing, youth, ecology and saints: as autumn settles in, the Cathedral’s Sunday worship life ricochets between themes that may seem at first glance to be contradictory but actually belong together because, as the words from the Sanctus (Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of Power and Might) affirm, heaven and earth are full of God’s glory.
