I’m carefully guarding the concept of holiday as I fend off weddings and funerals and phone calls and callers to the rectory —
and in the same spirit, I am refusing to let myself think very much about what is happening in Edinburgh today.
But, while I will not think or let my mind engage too deeply, I will say this:
please pray for Scott Rennie today, and for the wisdom of the kirk.
It will be a terrible day for a lot of people no matter what happens, but please God, let justice and mercy prevail.
