The questions in this issue have been answered by Alex Forrester one of our Elders.
1. What is your favourite hymn? Boys’ Brigade Hymn ‘Will your anchor hold in the storms of life.’ It brings back many happy memories of my years in the BB and camps with them.
2. Away from Carnoustie where have you enjoyed worshipping ? St Andrew’s Church, Toronto. We made a return visit there after many years and were made very welcome enjoying an after service cup of tea recalling old memories.
3. Who is your favourite biblical character? Moses. Had great faith and character to lead a nation to the Promised Land. He was chosen to receive the 10 Commandments which still provide us with the backbone to a good Christian way of life.
4. What is your favourite Bible reading? 23rd Psalm. I find it simple, powerful and comforting.
5. Which figure, living or dead do you most admire? There are a few but I am going to say Bill Gates. After making huge amounts of money from his business he has headed up the world’s largest charitable foundation and is now actively involved in its work, helping the world’s poorest and eradicating infectious diseases.
