A poet, Philip Larkin, wrote telling thoughts about church going. Some of his words come to mind in present day Scotland where belief in God and church attendance are both in decline. In one of his poems, ‘Church Going’, Larkin writes – ‘when churches will fall completely out of use, what shall we turn them into’? Thank God there are folk who do not think ‘churches will fall completely out of use’ but as former General Assembly Moderator Albert Bogle writes, ‘The Kirk runs the risk of sleepwalking into oblivion’ if the advance of our Christian faith in Scotland is ignored. In the Old Testament book of Samuel, there was a time when ‘the word of the Lord was rare in those days; visions were not widespread’. Again, in the Book of Proverbs it is written, ‘Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he’. Once there was a good man, Simeon. He lived in Jerusalem at a time when belief and worship was in decline. Nevertheless, he kept the faith. One day in the temple he held in his arms The One who is ‘a light for the revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel’. In, and out of our Dysart St Clair, we are to keep the faith, live the faith, share the faith, that God calls us to take to the very heart of this Scotland we all love.
