Rev Jim on the Scottish Bard 

Rev Jim told us about Robert Burns and his poetry because January 25th is celebrated as Burns' Night in Scotland.

He played us a song and quoted from the poem: 'A Man's a Man for a'That', which he used to explain that Robert Burns meant everyone is valued whatever their role, or job, or position in life. He shared the experience of friends from his church who help refugees in the current crisis. It was very moving to hear about an Iranian man who  had to leave his home country because he wished to be a peaceful, caring citizen, since he does not believe in war. Thank you Rev Jim!
