Penicuik and Stirling

The two places I have been able to visit this last weekend. At Penicuik it was to stay with a friend who told me something of the history of the town. There had been three mining villages which are now amalgamated into one. Being so close to Edinburgh has shaped its character.

At Stirling we were at a Writers Conference of the Scottish Fellowship of Christian Writers. With Elaine Duncan, Chief Executive of the Scottish Bible Society as the speaker, it lived up to every part of it’s name. Being in Stirling, it was ‘Scottish’. The ‘Fellowship’ was great as we caught up with each others news. ‘Christian’ because as Christian writers we are always writing to Biblical concepts. ‘Writers’, well we are writers.
