It is a privilege to represent Glasgow Presbytery, the body which has a care for your life as a congregation in the village of Banton. I've already been impressed by the first meeting of your Congregational Board. How much you do, and how involved you are in the life of Banton. The church magazine tells also of the Kilsyth BB visits to Malawi where the needs are so stark, and your support of them. All tribute to you. I look forward to getting to know you better.
About me: God brought me to surrender my life to him while a vet student in 1964. Then while working as a vet came Christ's call to the Christian ministry. I'm 70, married to wonderful Liz, and live in Torrance. We are members of the church there and that takes up quite a bit of our time. We have four children and five grandchildren. They take up evenmore of our time! I am also trying to write a very plain guide to the book of Isaiah. My main hobbies are walking with the dog and woodwork.
A word of apology. I'd love to be more involved with you but circumstances limit this. I am glad therefore that in Gordon McInally you have a locum who ministers on Sundays and does pastoral work during the week. It's really he whom you have as your minister. I simply serve you in a care for you and in undertaking those tasks which the church currently reserves to ordained ministers. Nonetheless please be in touch when that is the appropriate thing to do.
With Christian Greetings
(Rev) Peter White
