Graham Kings: The Holy Spirit and the Magi

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The season of Epiphany is about journeys. I love the story of Nevill Mott, Master of Caius College, Cambridge and former Professor of Physics at the University of Bristol. He was on a train from London to Bristol when he simultaneously remembered three things: first, he was no longer Professor of Physics at Bristol but at Cambridge; second, he had gone to London by car and not by train; and third, he had been accompanied by his wife.

Read it all.

A really good drawing together of themes from Luke and the contribution to the Canticles made by them.  The Nunc Dimittis is my favorite, and the one I find the most mysterious and beautiful, particularly in the Authorised Version.  As Bishop Graham says, one of the boons of our traditional services is how they use the songs and prayers found in the Bible and particularly in Luke.  The Holy Spirit infuses, breathes through and uses it all.
