Gathered and Scattered
The scattered nature of the population scatters too the presence of Christ in
the land and calls for this virtual gathering online of those engaged in living the
faith and reaching out to neighbours and visitors. A scattered Christ brings His
presence to many a far bay and glen, but makes it hard for his followers to feel
bound together in a practical face-to-face way with ones neighbour.
Nevertheless there are many places where churches gather and celebrate and
laugh and cry and work and live for others and for their own delight.
The web-pages following give some idea of where they are, what they do, some
of their priorities, their welcoming doors and their deep spirituality. In these
ways dispersed bands of travellers can and do reach out to each other and to
those who come for refreshment and inspiration. As you browse these pages,
feel the life-force of Argyll around you, the energy and hopes of its people,
the Spirit's movement amongst these scattered, but committed folk; then
you will have discovered something of the truth that Christ is in all places and
in all people, wherever they are, whoever they are - and whatever they do.
