A good few years ago now, there was talk of amalgamation of some some of the congregations in the town in which I ministered. A pipe dream – but a new larger building was mooted to replace two or three other places of worship.
One rumour was that one of the kirk buildings could be turned into a crematorium.
An old and faithful member came up to me and said “Whit dae we want wi’ a creamatorium (sic)”
And then continued, “Ah always get ma milk fae the Store (Co-operative) dairy!”
