Stories behind the Postcard

I had a hard time picking just three pictures from my trip to Scotland for the postcard I sent out. Here’s the story behind each of them.

2015-05-11 07.54.28The big picture is at St Andrews. There’s a huge St Andrews cathedral built bearing his name. It is Kate’s and my favorite places we visited. Golf started in the town. The beach running scene in Chariots of Fire is also from there. It also was at the epicenter of the Scottish reformation. You can see on the ground the letter “PH”. At this place in 1528 Patrick Hamilton a protestant reformer was burned at the stake. John Knox, who’s known amongst Presbyterians also preached and ministered there. Here’s a fact for recent history …Kate and William first met for coffee at a shop we saw in St Andrews.

This next photo is from the training time with you Young Life staff. We were in the middle of The Alongsider clinic, drawing our picture of a disciple. This clinic helps give the participant the relational and biblical principles that build spiritual maturity. Here’s one comment from the time. “I loved the practical ways to grow and focus on discipleship. I want to continue considering having goals and vision when discipling others.”
