A busy time of prayer and thank yous

Some of us in the congregation of the Good Shepherd, Murrayfield are just back from five days on the Isle of Cumbrae. We have been on retreat and holiday based at the Cathedral of the Isles, which has a very excellent Bed and Breakfast College attached - look it up and go and stay. Cumbrae is a very special island and it has grown in the affections of members of the church over the past few years that we have been visiting. The Rev'd Rosie Addis our assistant priest led the retreat basing it on the Lord's Prayer - and we certainly had a wonderful time exploring what those familiar words mean.

Returning for the weekend back home, we celebrated the Choir Valedictory with glorious music well sung and wonderfully played. It was good to be able to thank the choir for all they do over the year and to begin the thank yous for our retiring Director of Music Dr Patricia Warren, who leaves us at the end of July after 35 years. 

Quite a busy week all in all especially for those rehearsing and retreating.
