Synchronisity: on the occasional Sunday morning, I’ve taken the worship service at the Upper Clyde Parish Church at Abington, while the minister was on leave.
Nikki Macdonald was ordained and inducted there last October, following a placement in Musselburgh with a Minister, Yvonne Atkins.
Many moons ago, when I was Minister at Inveresk Kirk in Musselburgh, Yvonne was my student attachment.
At Upper Clyde, the Session Clerk is Moira White, whose husband Bob was MY supervisor, during my Probationary Assistantship (1973-4).
Moira happened to mention, after one Sunday’s service, that her elder son, Graham, is a doctor in Polmont.
My cousin, Richard , lives in Polmont, and – yep! – Dr. Graham White is his GP.
What a funny old inter-connected world!
