COMMENT on Luke Ch.12 vs 13-21 – SUNDAY 31 ST JULY 2022

This Sunday’s gospel reading warns against storing up material wealth, for life is precarious and if we died tomorrow who would benefit from all the ‘stuff’ we’ve collected? Things may give us pleasure or have emotional attachments but are other generations going to want them and would they have any second-hand value? The lesson is not to only value the things we have accumulated,
what has lasting value are our relationships – with family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues, and with God. For those things are about love and as the song says, ‘Love is all we need’.


Angela Gerrard, LLM – Pershore Abbey

We humans love, and need, to gather together. During the pandemic this was always difficult and sometimes impossible. Gathering with our groups, friends and family was something we missed so much. So recent events – the Platinum Jubilee, the Lionesses
winning the cup and the Commonwealth Games have allowed us to show our support and joy together. And for so many of us that is what our churches offer. A chance to gather, celebrate God and enjoy being together. Yes, we can worship God without church, but the joy of being together is just wonderful. Why not try it sometime? You will be very welcome.

Hughes & Company book wins Murdoch Medal 2022 

The winner of the British Golf Collectors Society prestigious Murdoch Medal was announced at The Open in St Andrews. Captain of the Society Bob Chadwick said, ‘I am delighted to announce that Swing Time: A Celebration of Golf and Music, 1870 to 1939 by Rand Jerris and Peter Lewis has won this year’s Murdoch Medal. The book that celebrates the popularity of the game and how it featured in popular music, theatre and film of that era, is a sublime publication and beautifully produced.' 

The Murdoch Medal award is made in recognition of a 'contribution to the heritage of golf' and is usually, though not exclusively, given for what the Committee regard as the outstanding publication on the history of golf in the previous year. Originality and substance are important considerations, but other, more general, contributions to golfing heritage are often taken into consideration. The winning medal is struck individually in sterling silver by Alexander Kirkwood and Sons, Scotland’s last remaining medallists.

The book was designed and produced by Hughes & Company and published by Grant Books Ltd. of Pershore.
