You may be wondering why I am posting this already… Due to the family holiday in Norway and my final conference in St Andrews, I will not be back in Trinity until 4th September!
It has been a VERY quick month, in which I have had the opportunity to get to know a number of new people. Many of my visits have been to the housebound parishioners with whom my supervisor has journeyed for a number of years; sharing in their stories and, in some cases, their anxieties.
We begin a new worship series in Trinity when I return, where we will be using material from Spill The Beans, which I would highly recommend to all worship leaders and teams!
Upon my return, Hamilton Presbytery will be holding a Recognition of Graduate Candidate Service to mark the completion of my studies at Glasgow University and the beginning of my time as a probationary minister!
The Rev. Dr. Doug Gay, Principal of Trinity College and author of ‘Remixing the Church‘, has kindly agreed to preach for my service. Having worked together on putting a service together during our trip to Calvin College, Michigan at the beginning of this year, it means a lot to know that he will be a part of this special occasion.
There will be refreshments and home bakes after the service served in the church hall.
