Well, that was a fairly good weekend. Cowdenbeath won and extended their lead to 5 points, I preached a not bad sermon on St Paul (wee, baldy heided and bandy legged), discovered I've lost 3lbs since Christmas and got bored witless at our joint service of Prayer for the Middle East. I agreed with everything that was said, but haven't heard such dull, passionless and uninspiring delivery in years. Stir me to action? Not a hope - it was excruciatingly dull. I nipped out quickly at the end - I simply could not bear to do polite chit chat after the service: "Wasn't that a lovely service Rector?" "NO!! It was boring and a waste of an hour." Not the done thing, so I foreswore honesty and scooted.
