Good news yesterday that Mother Ruth is taking up the post at Christchurch, Falkirk. They deserve someone brilliant and energetic and I'm certain she'll transform them as a congregation.
My horrific news is that a very good Gambian friend, Fax, who looked after me so well when I was out there, was mugged last week and died later in hospital with his injuries. I am totally distraught. A young man, full of the joys of life, who wore his Partick Thistle jersey with great pride, cut down in his prime. I mourn the death of someone I loved dearly.
