I don’t do anniversaries and stuff very well. Birthday tomorrow and, as I did some preparation today for our ordination service on Saturday, realised that it is 30th anniversary of my own. Amazing to look back and think of the book which I ought to be writing. And it rolls on – yesterday was one of those long, long days spent in the trench warfare of diocesan and congregational administration issues. When the roll is called up yonder, those of us who struggled together yesterday with the immoveable, the intractable, the incomprehensible and the unresolvable certainly deserve to be there.
And by the way, if any of you are passing St Mary’s College in St Andrews at 10 tomorrow [Friday] please tell David, who thinks for some strange reason that I am going to meet him there, that I am in Perth.
