Bishop’s House provided a peaceful setting for an evening of Fellowship – away from the usual surroundings of Church schoolroom premises or meetings in the Diocesan Centre – and without an Agenda!
After about an hour Bishop Gregor donned his Jeremy Paxman hat in his previously unknown role as Quizmaster (having set the 20 questions himself). Four teams set about answering such gems as: What is the capital of Peru? How many Charges in the Diocese are dedicated to St. Ninian and St. Mungo? What is the name of Dundee United football ground? In Chronological order which book of the New Testament was the first to be written – and which was the last?
Needless to say, a motley crew of battle-hardened TISEC trained Liturgists, in the presence of the Warden of Lay Readers and aided and abetted by their spouses, had no difficulty in dealing with them.
In the last two years Bishop Gregor has promoted a number of meetings with Lay Readers in various parts of the Diocese – including an “away weekend” recently in Millport – and there can be no doubt that Authorised Laity are being involved in the work (and decision-taking) of the Diocese as never before.
Thank you Bishop Gregor for a wonderful evening of Fellowship and fun – the smiles on the faces of the participants on the accompanying photograph says it all.
God Bless you in your work and Ministry.
