THE LOST CHORD

 

Seated one day at the organ I was weary and ill at ease, And my fingers wandered idly over the noisy keys,

I know not what I was playing or what I was dreaming then, But I struck one chord of music like the sound of a great Amen.

It flooded the crimson twilight like the close of an Angels' Psalm, And it lay on my fever'd spirit with a touch of infinite calm, It quieted pain and sorrow like love overcoming strife, It seemed the harmonious echo from our discordant life.

It linked all perplexed meetings into one perfect peace,

And trembled away into silence as if it were loath to cease, I have sought but I Seek it vainly that one lost chord divine, which came from the soul of the organ and entered into mine.

It may be that deaths bright Angel will speak in that chord again, It may be that only in Heaven, I shall hear that grand Amen.

The Way Forward

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(By The Rt. Rev. Dr. Gordon McMullan)

 

I have read with great enjoyment and education Eileen Cousins' detailed history of Magheralin's Parish Church. This is an extensive as well as an intensive work of research and writing for which the author is to be congratulated and thanked. Personally and as Bishop of Down and Dromore I welcome this opportunity to express warm appreciation to Mrs. Cousins for the time and patience involved in producing such a detailed and insightful work for publication. A parish possessing such a painstaking researcher and sensitive interpreter is indeed fortunate, as is the diocese in obtaining the printed history of one of its ancient and interesting parishes.

    Christianity is a religion rooted in history. The Apostles' Creed brings this to mind every time the words are read or spoken - "Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate." Jesus was born into a particular family, in a definite geographical location, at a specific time : his death on the cross, that for us opened the door to life eternal, is firmly dated "Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea." The events of time and place are also significant in Christian understanding as God's love was expressed and communicated incarnationally through a human life.

    If history is the setting and human life the form in which God's love comes to us in Jesus Christ then to be disciples of Jesus Christ is to be communicators of that love to others in our lives and in our time and place. Within the preceding pages there have been recorded many examples of that quality of self-giving love to God and neighbour in the Name of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Occasionally too there are recorded the fears and prejudices of people and these are also part of the story with the lessons that God would teach us.

    The past is indeed important but it is past and our call from God is to honour Him in the present and the future. That honouring requires obedience and faithfulness. Understanding of the nature of divine love revealed in Jesus comes through human experience, reflection, scripture, prayer, sacrament, compassionate openness to people regardless of colour, class, creed or status. Communicating that love happens when people not only hear it talked about in words but experience it as a reality in the lives of those who do the talking.

   It is a love that has to take seriously the wholeness of life Monday to Saturday as well as Sunday; has to take seriously providing fair opportunities for people to work as well as sing hymns. It is a love that celebrates life as well as consoles bereavement, a love that unites clergy and laity in the fellowship of the Church as a servant community in which individualistic Christianity is a contradiction in terms for we are brothers and sisters of Christ.

    As this Decade of Evangelism progresses through the 1990's may it be a time of renewal personally and collectively for all of us. As in 1991 the parish of Magheralin reflects on the past, thanks God for His guidance and blessing, and dedicates the endeavours of the present there opens up the strength and assurance of walking in the companionship of Jesus Christ as friend, Lord and Saviour and there is offered the joy of serving God and neighbour with the gifts entrusted to our stewardship.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all evermore.

 

GORDON DOWN AND DROMORE
