Today I had the privilege of attending the ordination and installation of Peter Loughridge at the new Edinburgh RP Fellowship in Scotland. Having attended the induction for Kenneth Stewart in Glasgow only seven months ago, it is amazing and encouraging to me that we all again came together today for another, similar event. The verse that stood out to me today was “The Lord has done great things for us, and we rejoice indeed” (Psalm 126.3). I love that it follows after “Then they said among the nations, the Lord has done great things for them.” It is truly the desire of the Scottish RP Church that the nations see what the Lord has done for us, and that many would come to join with us in that rejoicing.
There were representatives there from the Glasgow, Stranraer, Stornoway, Airdrie, and Edinburgh churches, and a good number over from the Irish RP Church as well, which was a great encouragement. We do rejoice indeed.
