The timing happened to work out for us to attend an evening film called Godspeed as part of The Abbey Summer School evening lecture offering. My professor from Regent College, Iain Provan introduced the film and Matt Canlis wrote it. The story follows a young American Presbyterian minister as he serves in a Scottish parish while undergoing graduate studies in St. Andrews. He learns from his parishioners that the good work of God with people is often slow work. We loved the film as well as the following discussion. You can learn more here: livegodspeed.org
After breakfasting at Edinburgh Larder, we boarded a noon train for York. And here we spend the night. Our room backs onto a busy railway track and temperatures in our little hideaway feel about 8 degrees higher than outside but the bed is soft and we’re glad to be here.
