We gathered in St Margaret’s Leven for the licensing of Ian Scott as a Lay Reader. There is always a story – and as so often this one is about faithful membership which shades into vocation. Ian has made the sacrifices which go with the training. And it reached its fulfilment in his licensing as a Lay Reader
St Margaret’s is part of the Central Fife Group. Here as in many places in the SEC we are realising that it is important that each congregation, however small, has somebody in a defined ministry role within it. Many people share in ministry – but the sense of the congregation’s own security suggests that a person in authorised ministry should be part of their life.
