|The stained glass window of John Wesley|
Having arrived in Inverness late on a Saturday night I was really pleased to be hosted overnight by the Revd Nigel and Mrs Kim Rodgers. They were a model of Christian hospitality. Nigel is the Minister for Inverness Methodist Church http://www.invernessmethodist.org.uk/ and it was good to share in Sunday morning worship there. This year is the 250th anniversary of the first visit of John Wesley to the town and there is a rather nice stained glass window in the church to commemorate this. When he visited all those years ago Wesley was prevented from preaching outdoors because of the rain but was invited to preach in the High Kirk. See the accompanying pictures of the stained glass window, a model of the High Kirk made by some of the young people of the church and a photograph of the High Kirk itself.

Then it was on to Fort William to share in a Sunday evening service which was a dedication service for the West Highland Way Bible Relay due to start the following morning. There is a posed photograph at the starting point of the West Highland Way on the local church website http://www.thedmac.co.uk/welcome.htm just before starting.
The idea was to carry the Bible on the route but also to give out Penny Gospels on the way. Almost immediately we had an opportunity to give out a gospel. As we reached the end of Fort William High Street we met a woman who said "I am lost". What a gift to a Christian. She meant she could not find the Council Office, but we made sure we explained what we were doing and gave her a Penny Gospel as well!
