Dear Friends

For those who were not at the recent SM Day of Fellowship, let me introduce myself in a ‘back to front’ way by telling you about me. I am Karen’s husband and Bethany, Nathan and Joel’s father as well as Tim’s father-in-law. I am Alison, Graham, Colin and Robert’s brother as well as being Alec and Hedy’s son. My nephews and nieces from Australia, Denmark and London call me Uncle Bernie. To many I am defined by my familial relationships. Beyond that, many other people call me a friend, ‘pastor’, or colleague. However, the most important identity that I have been given is that of a ‘son’ by my Father in heaven.

I am passionate about the vision of the church in Scotland and the enthusiasm I am finding in the Scottish Mission to move forward in the strength of our Saviour Jesus Christ. I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, who is in all his children, to reveal his purpose and hopes.

I believe we are living in the time of the end when old and young will have visions and dreams. (Joel 2:28) I am excited about hearing these dreams and visions that the Spirit has given to adults, youth and children as I will be meeting with many of you over the next few months.

This is an exciting time for me as I am looking forward to getting to know as many of you as soon as possible. I have a problem with remembering names and would appreciate it if you could help me out in any way you can!

May God bless us all as we dream His dreams for us all.

Pastor Bernie
