Evening Sun through the West Window

I wonder if clergy everywhere are the same – my Palm is set so that Sunday is the end of the week. Interesting week too – interviews in London on Wednesday for Mission to Seafarers and Daily Service for the BBC in Edinburgh on Friday morning and all the usual stuff as well. This morning was Forfar where I attempted to say what I believe about prayer. They are between Rectors and cheerfully flourishing in the vacancy as congregations often do. This evening I took part in the opening eucharist of the first of the two Glenalmond Summer Camps. About 60 young people and a dedicated group of leaders – many of them giving up their holidays to be there. An unusual and welcome experience for me to be three times the age of most of the congregation – in Forfar, I was certainly on the younger edge of those present. And the best moment of the day was the evening sun through the magnificent west window of Glenalmond College Chapel.
