We’re now in the season of Pentecost, that time within the Christian calendar in which the church remembers its founding by the coming of the Holy Spirit as Jesus had promised after Easter and then his ascension. Stock photo

A few Sundays back we had a Ukrainian family attending our worship service. They are staying with a kind local couple until hopefully they can find a place of their own. Like many others who have fled their homeland because of the Russian invasion, they are dealing with trauma, upheaval and uncertainty, but they’re determined to make the best of life in our wee province.

Thankfully, we managed to secure the help of a Ukrainian woman who has been living and working here for several years, and she acted as interpreter for the morning, an invaluable help for all concerned. As we chatted over a cuppa after morning worship, our interpreter, whom we’d only met prior to the service, made the whole situation just that bit less strange, and a lot more meaningful.
