100 days – Day 2
I was supposed to be in Glasgow today to have lunch here at the Horse Shoe with a friend, but unfortunately had to cancel our meeting.
In folklore, horseshoes were considered lucky. To ward off goblins and evil spirits from their homes, people hung iron horseshoes over their front doors. They were thought to be frightening to these wee nasties because they looked like the Celtic moon god’s crescent.
Sadly, no luck for me today
About meenisterAn ordained Church of Scotland Minister since 1974. Started off in Doune which is near Stirling, before moving to Trinidad for four years; on my return to Scotland, I was a rural minister in Perthshire and then was asked to become Minister at St.Michael's Inveresk where I spent eleven happy years. A short ministry in Guernsey followed and since 1999, I was a full time healthcare Chaplain in the town of Dumfries in SW Scotland, retiring from that post in December 2012. I started this blog on 6 May 2012, soon after my wife, Helen, was diagnosed with secondary cancer - it was a sort of diversion and still is, following her death on 16 June. I hope it shows that there is a lighter side to religion, that it's not gloom and doom and that we can sometimes laugh at ourselves in a self-effacing way. Some posts are, however, I hope provoking and food for thought.
