Wild Man

One of the down-sides of the bishopping life is a lack of continuity.  One constantly drops in on situations and miss the deep-down continuity which parish/congregational ministry brings.  I always feel that particularly in Advent and Lent.

So it was good to meet John the Baptist today in Kirriemuir.  I doubt if his camel skins would have been enough to keep him warm this morning.  His wild man bearing always challenges my desire to organise and strategise.

And Kirriemuir was a good place to be.  I didn’t venture into the pulpit – which is one of our most vertiginous.  But we had Nicola’s confirmation and a congregation of almost 60 on a freezing cold day.  So there’s plenty of Advent hope around.
