Twenty-three years ago today

Twenty-three years ago today I was ordained a priest in the Scottish Episcopal Church by Bishop John Crook at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Inverness.

It feels like a lifetime ago, and I may have moved out of full-time, stipendiary ministry in 2006, but, praise God, I am still here. And after the five years I’ve just had, I am grateful for that.

Here’s to the next twenty-three years.
