Lovely to hear how the presence continues in Dundee as the years pass .

Every blessing to all at St Mary’s.

Hi, Jonathan,

Glad to hear you feel quite at home here in “The Ferry”. I know you have quite an uphill struggle in trying to encourage members of the congregation to get into the 21st century but I’m sure you are up to the task.

I would like to wish you well in the hope that St. Mary’s realise what a hard working fella you are.

Hi Jonathan —

It’s good to be able to stay in touch with you by means of your blog.

It’s also good to have access to your wonderful reflections. I’ve been helping out at St. Mary’s from time to time and I’ve made a point of saying that when it comes to preaching, I can’t hold a candle to their most recent record!

Happy Advent to you & Shane and love to you both from Yvonne & me.
