An insomniac Scots Calvinist looks at the Church and the world and wonders how we managed to get ourselves into such a mess. Now that I am free from ecclesiastical duties I am able to return to shaking my head in wonder and blogging. Thank you for your patience.
The title of this blog is not, as some have suggested, an allusion to the concept that we can see “the world in a grain of sand.” Nothing so poetic. I was merely thinking of being a minor irritant in a barely sentient mollusc which may, however improbably, produce a pearl.
I have been asked if it would be possible to use the material on this blog elsewhere. Use whatever you want, and if you are kind enough an attribution to the original source wuld be appreciated.
