Our friends from Togo
American couple

We said ‘goodbye’ this morning to Eric and Brenda Kosiorek, and three of their sons Caleb, Daniel and Michael, who have been with us for the last four weeks, but leave for the United States on Wednesday. They are missionaries, with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism. They serve in a town called Mango in the West-African country Togo, where they work at the Hospital of Hope. They were topping off in Scotland on their way home to

The best big brother they could ever want

I loved how at church this morning we prayed for all the kids of primary and secondary school age, a couple of days before they go back to school (unless they’re at Cauldeen Primary, which returns on Wednesday.) Fiona invited them all to come to the front, and overcame any teenage diffidence with the lure of what looked like Haribos! ‘God is our refuge and strength,’ Fiona reminded them. She talked to them about what a ‘refuge’ is – a

STOP! Report of Fiona Waite’s Sermon on Psalm 46

This morning, Fiona Waite was the preacher, speaking on Psalm 46. She began reflecting on this Psalm a couple of weeks ago while on a family holiday in Harris. The week before she’d been part of the Hilton team working with people with Down Syndrome at the Casa Haralui in Romania – spiritually speaking, that had been a ‘mountaintop experience,’ she said. The time in Harris gave her a chance to slow down, and hear from God. God is God, she

Be still and know – Bible passages for Sunday
Be still

Psalm 46 1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations

Wonderful song….

Please listen to this wonderful video which we listened to yesterday at church. John writes: I think this song, and this video is absolutely wonderful, and I was greatly blessed in hearing it yesterday morning. It got to me right from the start, with that wonderful image ‘you unravel me with a melody.’ Here we are mixed up like fankled wool and God heals and restores not with rough fingers but a melody, a sweetness, a loveliness which heals.

Light and darkness – personal thought from John
John at Scone

I want to say firstly how helpful this picture of the ‘armour of God’ can be, and secondly that it can helpfully be combined with another way of looking at our struggles as Christians. Ephesians 6:10-20 emphasises that the struggle we face with doubt, temptation, fear, anxiety, defeatism is part of a universal conflict between light and darkness. We are called to remember this, and to take our stand on what God, through Jesus has done to help

Donald Macquarrie preaches on the Armour of God

A report on Donald's sermon Knowing that he was going to be preaching on Ephesians 6:10-20 last Sunday, Donald Macquarrie had re-read the whole book of Ephesians over the last few weeks. Once again he was, he told us, ‘blown away’ by the wonders it contains. As he wrote it, St Paul’s heart was bubbling over at God’s great plan to send Jesus to show how much God loves us, and to die on our behalf so that our sins can be forgiven. It is God’s
