Editorial Reviews

The poet in David Ogston shines through, constantly catching one unawares with a startling use of simple words….These pages must be preserved and made available by publication.
' ... a marvellous resource - not just for this season but beyond.
Johnston McKay's pulling together and editing of this material - assisted by David's widow, Meg - is clearly a labour of love ... The book has some wonderful meditations, many of them in Scots. I love the opening to his Scots Communion Service:
Minister: The Lord be wi ye.
Response: An wi you tae.
M: Faa kens us like God kens us?
R: Ilk een bar neen, baith young an aul.
It is not necessary to be a poet in order to lead worship well. Not only that, it is perfectly acceptable to use the poetry of others. There is no need for congregations to be served up junk food for the mind.
What language shall I borrow, to praise thee, heavenly Friend?
The David Ogston book would be a great place to start. '
