The rain did not dampen the enthusiasm for the Gibson Street Gala. Church was mobbed, volunteers welcomed and entertained, and the local community shone, even though the sun didn't.
I realised today that there will be many things in the next few months which I'll participate in for the last time. As I walked round the Gala, a wee tear came to my eye. I am thankful that we've been given the gift of partnering with such a vibrant event as the Gala. It truly is a wonderful day and one that I look forward each year. I wonder how it will feel next year if I come back as a visitor?
