Introducing Musings of the Walker, a blog by my friend, Kirsten (Walker), of Dundee, Scotland.
I first met Kirsten in YWAM, at the Seamill Centre, where she was a student and I was on staff as the groondskeepahrr. She hearkens from Athelstaneford, a town of too many syllables for me to pronounce with ease. Athel___ford is, I believe, near Edinburgh. Kirsten's one of the few people I know who's house has a name: The Manse (her father is a Church of Scotland minister. -Kirsten, do you mind this much disclosure? Sorry!) I remember in particular a great night of busting out old tunes in the red-tiled kitchen of the Seamill Centre, when we were on dish duty with her. Since she grew up in the (sniff!) Church of Scotland and we were hymn fans, we ended up harmonizing on a robust rendition of 'Praise to the Lord', you know, the one by that superstar of 17th century hymnody, Joachim Neander. And besides having one of my favourite Scottish accents, she has the distinction of being the person who first introduced me to that great Scottish slang word, 'mingin'.
Kirsten is currently living in Dundee, which is sort of in the middle of the country, north a bit from Edinburgh by 45 minutes or so (help me out here, Kirsten, or Jessica). She's been there for a few years now, sharing the love of God in a city that needs it.
I appreciate that about her, that she is trying to be faithful to share the good things in her life. So, check out her blog, and do be sure to ask her about what she got up to at St. Andrew's Uni. I don't think St. Andrew's ever quite recovered from Kirsten's student years there.....
