This appointment by the Church of Scotland is only one degree of separation away from me! Dave was my 'Scotland Boss' when I worked in an 'out-source' office, undertaking safety and reliability assessments for what was then BEG(UK)Ltd. Somewhere I still have the card he snet me when I left to train for ministry 20 years ago. Dave read the scriptures at my ordination service in 2003, and now, almost 16 years, later he's taking up a role in the big-C Church himself. That amuses and pleases me. Hope it goes well for him and for the C of S.
