Licensing of Ian Scott. #pisky

Good news story from St Margaret’s, Leven, last night – the licensing of Ian Scott as a Lay Reader.  Ian is another of our growing band of Lay Readers – people who have made big sacrifices to train, prepare and be formed for ministry.  He is another example of what is a growing trend across the Scottish Episcopal Church.  St Margaret’s now has within its life a person who arises from the congregation and who is in an authorised ministry.  We are still exploring options for the ministry of the Central Fife Group of which it is part.  However long that takes, there is a person in the life of the congregation who will help to sustain it.  And we have achieved the same with the ministry of Revd Margaret Dineley in St Finnian’s Lochgelly and Revd Gerry Dillon in St Luke’s  Glenrothes.
