A Scattering of Seeds by Canon Bill Anderson

A Scattering of Seeds by Canon Bill Anderson

This little book is one that Fr Bill had always hoped might be published. It is a collection of little sermons: short, sweet, simple pieces he wrote for the Saturday Sermon column in the Aberdeen Press and Journal in the early years of this century. He deals with a wide-ranging set of topics, with his customary blend of seriousness, humour and reminiscence. It may be dipped into, according to the season and one’s mood. It had almost reached the stage of going to print when he died and its publication now is our tribute to a very dear friend. Included also are four articles he wrote for his poetry column in the Aberdeen diocesan magazine Light of the North.

“Here was a man of gracious words and who inspired them in others. I don’t think I’ve ever known any priest, any person even, of whom people speak so uniformly well … There was a reflection of Christ. There was something imbibed from the Crucified.” (Bishop Hugh Gilbert at Fr Bill’s Funeral Mass)
