Great to be in Cambridge last night for the farewell do for Jeremy Begbie. Musician, theologian, professor and preacher, Jeremy is a mentor to me and many others. He has been at Ridley Hall for over 20 years, and now is taking a post at Duke University, North Carolina. During the evening, mixed in with the speeches, presentations and prayers, Jeremy took us on brilliant journey playing at a grand piano the music from Rachmaninov, Debussy, and Liszt. I really recommend his wonderful book 'Theology, Music and Time'. This week in morning bell I am going to be thinking about time, and I'll be referring to some of the work that Jeremy has done in this area in through his practise and reflection in and around music.
