Just another Friday…..

A University friend, many years ago, was Ordained and Inducted to his first Charge – in Glesga.

One of the first things he did was to consult with the Session Clerk (Senior Elder) about forthcoming events in the Congregation that had been arranged prior to his becoming Minister there.

At one point, he asked if there would be a Good Friday evening service that particular year.

“What date is Good Friday this year?” .

Checking his diary. “This year it falls on 25 March (or whatever)”.

A momentary silence.

Then the Session Clerk pipes up, “But…but…no…no; that’s the date of the Annual Congregation Dance and ‘Race Night'”

Only in Weegieland!
