  • Pause For Thought

    From Rev Ruth Scott, an Anglican vicar in Richmond:

    "In a conversation last week I used the phrase, “to run like the clappers.” My friends burst out laughing, asked if I’d made it up and what was I talking about. I was incredulous they didn’t know the expression. Now it’s not unusual for people who think they’re speaking the same language to confuse one another because the same words mean different things to them. If we don’t realise that’s happening it can lead to all kinds of argument. Take the word ‘God’ for example. Some believe it signifies a supernatural being whose characteristics are as diverse as those who believe in Him, Her or It. For others ‘God’ is shorthand for dynamic, transforming love that’s experienced and lived out through human relationships in and with the world. Some simply see the term as a reminder that life is so much more than our own limited understanding can comprehend and is therefore a call to humility and on-going exploration. Depending on what the word means for you it will have positive or negative connotations. When someone defines God and says they don’t believe in that God, I often find they interpret the word very differently from me, and I don't believe in the God they've described either. The speaker is surprised because their assumptions about the word's meaning and about me as a priest are inaccurate. Whether it’s religious or non-religious language, to speak the same language isn’t necessarily to mean the same thing. What we assume is usually worth checking out if we’re to avoid unnecessary conflict, whether that’s at home with the family or negotiating international peace. As for running ‘like the clappers’, it’s said that at Chatham Dockyard the bell summoning men to work rang faster and faster as the starting time drew nearer. The yard was large and if you hadn’t left enough time you might have to run as fast as the bell clappers to avoid being late."
