"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! "
Congratulations to new Lincoln Readers - Licensed during their Annual Service and Celebration of 150 years of Reader Ministry!

In a special Service of the Word on 8th October 2016 Lincoln welcomed their new Readers and celebrated 150 years of Reader ministry. The service was held in the Quire and not the Nave of Lincoln Cathedral and Readers led many aspects of the worship.

During the service, Reader Susan Horle came rushing in with a letter shouting: "Is there a Reader called John here?" Her colleague John Davies took the scroll and proclaimed: "It's from Paul!" He then read the message of greeting from Philippians 4.2 - end with great enthusiasm and encouragement!

During his sermon, Bishop Nicholas encouraged us all to focus on Christ - within and without, remaining faithful, confident and joyful!

After the Act of Dedication the Cathedral Consort sang a beautiful work by Jonathan Dove - 'Seek him that maketh the seven stars'. As they did so, the light of Christ was spread amongst all who were gathered.

With lit candles, and singing the lively chorus 'We are marching in the light of God', the service was dismissed and left the cathedral by the great west door.

The service had been uplifting and at times deeply moving. The Lincoln Readers' AGM followed - during which colleagues who had been 'called home' were remembered and Roy Sutton and John Davies were congratulated on entering their 50th year of Reader ministry!
