‘Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’ Matthew 11:28-30
Almost 30 people met at the Crask for a service that was best summarised by the Gospel for today – that wonderful passage above. We celebrated the Eucharist, shared lunch together and yes, found rest for our souls. That in summary is what the ministry at the Crask has been about pretty much ever since Kai and Mike took on this isolated wayside Inn on a dozen years ago and is now being continued by Douglas and Denise.
We welcomed eleven folk who came on a (mini)bus trip up from Inverness Cathedral and also a couple from Germany who are travelling around in their campervan, as well as people from around the northern parts of the Diocese.
Douglas and the team sustained us, whilst also catering for a fair number of others passing by and feeling peckish. If you have never been to a service at the Crask, you can always find one on the third Thursday of the month at noon and you will be most welcome.
