Luke 12:32–40 (Listen)

32 “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35 “Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning, 36 and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the wedding feast, so that they may open the door to him at once when he comes and knocks. 37 Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will dress himself for service and have them recline at table, and he will come and serve them. 38 If he comes in the second watch, or in the third, and finds them awake, blessed are those servants! 39 But know this, that if the master of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have left his house to be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

(ESV)


About Reverend Bob Edy: Bob was ordained (in mid-life!) in 1993 and appointed vicar of Ducklington in 1999. He was formally inducted as Rector of the parish in November 2013. From 1979 to 2008 he worked at Henry Box School as head of History, Head of Year and then Deputy Head. He is married to Ruth, father to Rhoda and Charlotte and grandfather to Esther, Benjy, Gemma and Isaac. Bob enjoys sport, particularly golf and cricket, and is very enthusiastic about the annual Greenbelt Festival. He enjoys discussing faith issues with individuals and small groups and feels that being a vicar is an enormous privilege - and quite hard work too! Bob left St Bartholomew's, in May 2015, for a slightly quieter life as Chaplain at Rendcomb College. We hope to welcome him back at a later date as a "guest" preacher.
