It's been a while since I posted anything, partly because I have been otherwise occupied, partly because other platforms seem to be more urgent these days.
Anyway, last Friday afternoon was one of pure joy as I had the privilege of conducting the marriage of a young couple in the Memorial Chapel at the University of Glasgow.
Covid restrictions resulted in relatively small numbers attending, and social distancing meant the place felt quite full, as everyone was so well spread out. There were no hymns and no solo singers, just some lovely organ music, beautiful poetry and a couple pledging their lifelong loyalty and love.
It was a once strange and totally normal to be in a place with fifty people (the last time I did so was March 2020) and the atmosphere was just one of love, hope, joy and grace. The chapel staff were really accommodating, and the photographer and videographer so inconspicuous. The sun shone, the bride was both radiant and beautiful, the groom handsome. It really was an afternoon of bliss.
