[BIRDS SQUAWKING]

[CAB DRIVER] Can't take you

any further son.

SAM:
Ah, no,

this is fine, thanks.

How much do I owe you?

Seventeen pounds, please.

Islander?

Yep, born and raised.

Visiting your folks?

SAM:
Funeral, actually.

Oh, sorry to hear that.

[SAM SIGHS]

Sorry, uh,

I'm a student.

[BIRDS SQUAWKING]

- Hi, Dad.

- Well, hurry up. The tide's coming in.

I hope you've brought

some smart clothes with you

- for the funeral.

- Of course.

Mum said Megan fell

from the cliffs.

Yes, terrible business.

What was she doing

up there?

I don't know, son.

Messing about,

I should think.

- Playing the fool.

- It just doesn't make much sense.

Every kid born around here knows

how dangerous East Point is.

Yes, well, some children just

don't listen to advice, do they?

And don't go talking

to your mother about it, either.

She's very upset.

[LADY GASPS]

[TIRES SCREECHES]

Bloody hippies!

- Dickhead!

- Stay out of the sodding road!

[CHUCKLES]

- Hello, darling.

- Oh, hi, Mum.

[CLEARS THROAT]

Do you want me

to make you some food, love?

Uh, no, thanks, Mum.

I'm really tired.

I might just have

a lie down if you don't mind.

[FOOTSTEPS RECEDING]

[CHURCH BELL RINGING]

ALAN:
Come on, you two.

Buying any wood?

Got magic in it.

[CHURCH BELLS CONTINUE RINGING]

[MOUTHING] Good morning.

Solomon had sinned.

Solomon had turned

his back on God.

And yet, God withheld

his hand of punishment

during Solomon's lifetime.

How come?

Why wasn't the entire kingdom ripped

away from Solomon and his family?

Because of David.

As far as he was concerned,

there was no other relationship

as critical as his relationship

with God.

And once he realized he had

jeopardized that relationship,

he struggled to put God

back in his life.

Scripture tells us

that Solomon's heart

was not fully devoted

to the Lord, his God,

as the heart

of his father had been.

David's relationship with God

was protecting his son

even when Solomon made a terrible

and disastrous decision.

And so, this morning's sermon

is intended as an encouragement

to those of you

who take your relationship

with God seriously.

When you focused

your life on God,

you have created

an inheritance of protection

for your children.

They may make foolish decisions

and pay a terrible price,

but your faith

will show to them

the worst effects

of their foolishness.

It's also meant

as a challenge

to those of you

who haven't realized

the importance

of your relationship with God.

You can give

no greater inheritance

- to your offspring.

- What?

- FATHER DAVID:
And the inheritance...

- Stop staring.

We've been

through enough already.

Which brings us sadly

to the tragic story

this week

of our own young

Megan Lancaster,

who saw a deer that had

been injured at East Point.

As was her nature, she ran

to help the stricken animal

and in so doing,

fell from the cliff.

How sad so young a person

should lose her life

in coming to the aid

of a lowly animal.

And yet the difference

between a person and an animal

is no greater

than the difference

between divinity

and humanity.

That is why it is so amazing

the Divine Lord,

the highest form of life,

knowingly and willingly

sacrificed himself

for the sake

of a lower life form.

We pray this week

for Megan's family,

for John and Bea, her parents,

that their sacrifice

might not be in vain.

[CHATTERING]

We shall all rise now

to sing hymn number 237,

All Things Bright

and Beautiful.

["All Things Bright

and Beautiful" playing]

What are you doing here?

Why'd you have
