I spent this evening in Stirling with the Dunblane Area Council who had joined together for an Ascension Day Eucharist.  Our Area Councils have sometimes seemed to be casting about and looking for a role – this evening they had a joint choir with all the trimmings.  Seems to me to be just what they should be about.  The sermon was rather closer to the script than is sometimes the case – tho’ the printer on which it was printed was running out of ink.
