Ever-rolling Stream

For those of us who spend too much of our time in meetings. time sometimes hangs heavy. The inhabitants of our General Synod Office know that in Room 13 I always sit on the side of the table facing the window so that I can count the chimney pots across the magnificent roof-scape towards Murrayfield.

I was sitting in one of the rooms at our Cathedral in Perth having what was obviously an exceptionally interesting and engaging meeting with representatives of Perth Presybtery of the Church of Scotland when this clock took matters into its own hands. I noticed it when the minute hand passed out the second hand and was heading for a second lap. I shall take it everywhere with me.
