Quebec in the Highlands

Today we were delighted to welcome Bishop Bruce Myers and The Venerable Edward Simonton from the Anglican Diocese of Quebec.  +Bruce preached in Tain and Ven Edward in Dornoch.  In his address +Bruce told us about the scattered small congregations in his Diocese (nothing familiar there then:-)

He told us that when he first became Bishop, he put up a map of his Diocese and inserted a pin for each congregation.  He had without thinking about it used yellow pins and the 68 pins looked like mustard seeds scattered across the map.  How fitting was today’s Gospel –  “If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” (Luke 17:6)
