We’re off tomorrow morning to Krakow. I can’t say I’m looking forward to the visit to Auschwitz but it is obligatory.
It’s been busy these last few days. I went visiting facilities for the homeless in Perth with CATH. It was one of those moments when I saw people doing a job which I simply could not do. Not enough patience or resilience these days.
And on to the Institution of Kimberly in St Mary’s, Dunblane. It was one of those good moments – to see a priest with great potential beginnning a ministry in a congregation of great potential. Kelvin preached a warm sermon beautifully expressed – about encounter. And people felt that a new and exciting chapter had begun.
Today has seen the launch of Casting the Net in all of our churches across the diocese. It’s taken a while to get here and we are working hard to keep up with expectations. But it was a good moment. I was in St Mary’s, Birnam. We had nets and fish and fish-shaped cakes and there were children and there is hope.
