Is there anybody among you

who if your wean asks for a gluten free focaccia

will gie them a rock?

Or if the bairn asks for a sustainably farmed fish,

gies them a weird snake they found on eBay?

If we ken wur kids an whit they need

Sons an dochters,


Just come out wi it!


Dear God,

We spier ye for blessing

as we learn tae expect it.

Matthew 7: 7-12

7 ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. 9 Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? 10 Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

12 ‘In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.
