Dec 27th - Friday, part 1 of 3

Oh goodness, my last real blog post was a week ago! But then, it has been a little bit busy. 

On Friday 20th I was supposed to be going to part of a team carol singing at the local care home, but I called off as the manse mutt wasn't well and I took her for a check up at the vet in Fort William. Vet couldn't find anything wrong but the mutt definitely had something going through her system - she's fine now, thankfully.

While we were in FW, I delivered 50kg of donations to Lochaber Foodbank. Those donations have been gathered over the peninsula, and are only the latest in the ongoing generosity and concern of local people for those who are struggling to get by. Thanks to one and all for their support of the Foodbank.

Saturday 21st was a desk day, preparing some of the upcoming services and events - and clearing the desk of the last few!

On Sunday 22nd worship was at Kilchoan and then Acharacle. I admit to a 'Christmas Brain' moment when my mind went totally blank and I couldn't remember what I was about to do. Thankfully, the congregation just smiled sympathetically.

Finally on the Sunday, while some members of the congregation were supporting the Free Church Carols, there were carols at Salen in the Hotel. Carols at the Salen pub is a new event and next year, so as not to conflict, I'll double check the date of the Free Church Carols. There was a good gathering at Salen and nearly 60 folk had gathered with most singing along. A good evening and not too late. Photos below after I've had dinner.
