FORGIVENESS:

 

I only remember one thing my English teacher said to me.

We had been told to read a passage from AJ Cronin about the Tay BRIDGE Rail Disaster…and comment on what we thought about it.

When we were all finished reading, she asked for comments…

I think it’s really good because he uses a lot of really big words…says I…

No, you stupid boy, it’s really bad because he uses a lot of big words…the big show off!

Ooops.

I thought I’d got it so right…and I’d got it so wrong…

Sermon:  GRACE:

 

The only thing that marred a perfect day, in a perfect setting, was the very bad violinist murdering “The Windmills of your Mind”

- as I ate my delicious sandwich, and drank my strong black coffee in the village square in Wittenberg, in former East Germany.

I was there to visit the most famous door in the world…the door in the church at Wittenberg – where in 1516 Martin Luther pinned his complaints against the church of the day….and sparked an explosion of ideas that changed the face of Europe forever.

And the argument was all about a thing called - grace.

Luther was convinced that the church had lost its way

WHAT DO YOU BRING TO THE PICNIC?

 

Did I mention that I had a wee sports car?

Great for picnics…

Hood down…off to Abbotsford…

Picnic under the trees by the Tweed…

Living the dream, my dears,

Living the dream!

That was last year…

The week-end is different now.

Our week-ends are different now…

And they’re all at it…

Dine in for £10-00

Waitrose, Tesco, M&S

Two courses and wine for two people for £10-00.

Pressure off…

Relax and enjoy.

This is no ordinary week-end.
