Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

SIgns of hope in many places

This morning service at St Margaret's Church in Restalrig was a gentle reminder of what we mean by authority and service. We were reminded that Jesus showed what he meant by leadership by washing his disciples feet. In a world obsessed by the cult of celebrity and authority given to the famous just because they are famous, it was reminder that real leadership needs depth and principles as well as volume.

A frantic run out after church to do the weeks shopping, I dashed to an excellent constituency debate about climate change before heading back to pick up my boy who had been playing mini rugby for Portobello Hornets against Royal High and Broughton, (they won both games), to go to watch Edinburgh Rugby play Llanelli Scarlets It's on days like this that I almost regret selling our car during the congestion charging debate, somewhat ironic given the discussions we had in the afternoon!

Still, Edinburgh won for the first time this season, 27-17, in a cracking game. Is this an omen for a change of fortunes down Murrayfield way? I hope so.
