I took part this evening in a session called ‘Acts of God’ run by the churches in Dunkeld as part of an exploration of what they call ‘the curious nature of God’ I was supposed to talk about healing and reconciliation – which means that I talked about what I always talk about. And this time the Powerpoint did work. As always at this kind of event, there are interesting people around and you never quite know who you are talking to – and there are almost always people who served in the army in Northern Ireland and who have an intimate knowledge of the ditches of South Armagh. Reactions also included a vehement condemnation of education provision divided on religious grounds. No – I can’t see why it is necessary either.
