Last night was one of those moments. Down in Dollar, we celebrated a new ministry as Jeremy arrived with Christine and their two children. As I’ve said before, I have been in ministry so long that I have lost any sense that I might be doing anything else. But Jeremy and Christine could be doing other things – and they have chosen to do this. And so last night was full of hope and expectation. As well as the Dollar choir, there was the choir from St Peter’s, Lutton Place, in Edinburgh and the choir from the Parish Church. Jeremy was welcomed into the area and the ecumenical gathering of clergy by Susie – a Southern Belle with a voice like a brace of barber-shop quartets – the local parish minister. The Church of Scotland amazes me by its breadth. We’ll come back to that another time.
