One of those days which seems endless both in time and distance – over 200 miles today.
I managed the early start in Glasgow for the Daily Service. On of the things I really do like is the challenge of live radio. The little light comes on and you’re away. It’s really to do with economy and exactness – finish at 9.59.50 precisely. Everything else that we do as clergy tends to be messy and unfinished. Frikki and the Choir from our Cathedral in Glasgow were really great – highly talented, business-like and obviously very committed to what they do.
Quick excursion into the support trenches behind the episcopal Front Line. And then Kirriemuir for a ‘do’ to mark Canon Charles’ birthday – 96 I think. He’s as sharp and active as ever. Wonderful. When you see the longevity of clergy, you understand why Clergy Pension Schemes are always under stress! Many happy returns.
