The Return of Gaiters

I’d just like to request that you add something to your prayer list this week.

Last night at Choral Evensong, the psalmist reassured us that the Lord hath no pleasure in the strength of an horse : neither delighteth he in any man’s legs. However, I’ve a notion that the Holy Spirit in her wisdom may be about to do something wonderful. Is it not possible that on Friday at 12 noon in the blessed town of Oban, the Holy Spirit will reinstitute the wearing of gaiters to the Episcopate of the Scottish Episcopal Church?

It seems to me that Fr Kevin’s consecration as Bishop of Argyll and The Isles is the perfect moment for such a blessing to fall upon us – indeed quite possibly the only such moment for a generation.

I know that the Holy Spirit can do this all on Her own, but a few wee arrow prayers from the rest of us wouldn’t go amiss, surely.

Inspires Online – October

Just in case anyone was wondering, Inspires Online for October has been held back until tomorrow so that it can include the news of the Election of the new Bishop of Argyll and The Isles which will take place at an Episcopal Synod tomorrow at noon at the Cathedral of the Isles on Cumbrae.

[Should it be Cathedral of The Isles?]
