World Spoilt

We met today with the congregations of our St Andrews West Area Council – in a Leisure Centre in Glenrothes.  These are the congregations which have probably seen the greatest social change – the end of mining in Southern Fife and the gradual development of a culture of commuting across the Forth Bridge into Edinburgh.  So times have been hard for some of them and they’re still very much alive.

The gospel reading was the Unjust Stewards – and this is the globe which the children created during the service to symbolise a world exploited and spoilt.  Children?  Yes .. gradually becoming visible in our congregations.  Hope for the future.
