CONGRATULATIONS TO MARGARET!

 

Margaret is 'Set Apart' as a Reader in The Church of Scotland.

 

On Thursday 13th March 2014 our Session Clerk Mrs Margaret Grant was 'set apart' as a reader in the Church of Scotland. This is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication on Margaret's part and as a congregation we are immensely proud of her achievement. The fact that the church was packed with friends from throughout the parish as well as a strong representation from Presbytery spoke volumes for the love and admiration we all have for Margaret. We join in wishing her every blessing in her new role and trust that she will find true fulfilment in the days ahead.

Looking Ahead to Easter

 

This year we have some exciting plans to mark Easter at St Drostans. The Easter Service will be in the church at the usual time of 10.00am but at the earlier time of 8.00am there will be a short service at St Drostan's Well down at the beach followed by refreshments in the village hall. (bacon butties have been promised!) For those who are even more keen/energetic a walk along the coast road is planned starting from Rosehearty Church and ending back at Aberdour. All hardy souls who are up for this challenge should meet at Rosehearty at 7.00am. The plan is that the walkers from Rosehearty should meet with those gathered at the well for 8.00am so that everyone can enjoy refreshments before the Easter Service in the church. We look forward to seeing everyone who can manage to come along to any or all of these activities.

 

 

 

Bill's Message for Easter

 

A faith that has never been tested, looked at minutely will not sustain you in your time of need. A Roman spear made sure of that. Jesus died on the Cross yet three days after His crucifixion he showed himself to his friends and many other people. Many skeptics have held out for hard evidence and they have a right to do so.

 

For me the most compellng evidence is found in how the the disciples behaved when Mary told them Christ had risen.

 

But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.

 

Faith is not blind. It is only when you can look at the resurrection with your doubts and fears and come out the other side, to find the risen Christ, that you like the disciples will go forth and tell the Good News.

 

He is not here; He is risen.

 

Every blessing - Bill & Maureen
