  • That Old, Old Division 🧱
•
Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called "the uncircumcision" by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands- remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
•
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near.” ~Ephesians 2:11-17
•
Be reconciled to Christ! How? By faith in His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross for you, personally...the spotless Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of Christ. TODAY is the day of salvation.

  • On Tuesday we asked you to guess our #MysteryPic 📷. This was a tough one but wow what a response we got! The question is, did you guess correctly? Drum roll please… 🥁. If you guessed Scotstarvit Tower, then congratulations!
•
Scotstarvit Tower is a well-preserved example of a 15th to 16th century Scottish tower house, tucked away in Cupar, Fife. Scotstarvit served as a typical residence of medieval Scottish nobility 🏰.
•
The tower is a mystery in itself! No one knows the exact date that it was built, but we do know that the Inglises of Tarvit owned the barony from the late 15th century. Its current façade is down to the work of Edinburgh lawyer Sir John Scot, who purchased the estate in 1611. Its interior reflected Scot’s whimsical nature.
•
Scot acted as James VI’s director of Chancery, Lord of Session and Privy Councillor. He was a leading cultural figure in his day and a poet, writing the eccentric Scot of Scotstarvet’s Staggering State of the Scots Statesman which stood against corrupt politicians.
•
The attic dates to John Scot’s time and unusually featured an ornate classical stone chimney piece, carved with the initials of Scot and his wife Dame Anna Drummond. This chimney piece was moved to Hill of Tarvit in 1906. It has been suggested that the attic was where Scot wrote his famous poems. •
In 1650 and with the arrival of Oliver Cromwell, Sir John fell from favour before his death in 1670. Scot’s legacy still survives as a leading figure of his time. Did you know Scot helped to get Joan Bleau’s Atlas of Scotland published? Its significance is still recognised and is believed to be the first atlas of Scotland 🌍.

  • What do you think – is this the perfect window into a peaceful monastic life at Glenluce Abbey? 🙏
•
The abbey was founded by Roland Lord of Galloway in 1191/2. It was a strategic move for the Lord, forming part of his plans for the semi-independent lands of Galloway.
•
Despite its calming setting, things weren’t always peaceful here…
•
The abbey was associated with the Galloway rebellion of 1235 against Alexander II. Abbot Robert was deprived in the aftermath. He was replaced by the Prior of Melrose.
•
Then, from around 1500, the community suffered from a series of extended disputes over rival claims to the abbacy or commendatorship.
•
In 1545-6, it was invaded by the Earl of Cassilis and Gordon of Lochinvar, who were attempting to impose their own claims on the abbey. In 1560, Gordon of Lochinvar was back. (presumably the same bloke?) He expelled the monks who had taken up monastic life here.
•
The abbey did have it’s peaceful moments, and was very much at the heart of country life. It depended heavily on sheep farming, and developed close trading links with both Ireland and the continent. 🐑
•
This countryside setting was revered much later. In the 19th century, the abbey became subject of a number of paintings, showing idyllic country life.
•

  • Well this is a view of St Andrew’s Castle we don’t get to see every day! While you’ll not be able to soar above the castle when you visit, did you know you can explore it from beneath the ground?
•
Built by Bishop Arnold (1160 – 62), throughout the Middle Ages this castle was the official residence of Scotland’s leading bishop.
•
During the early 16th century, religions tensions grew, culminating in a terrible end for Protestant preacher George Wishart.
•
Cardinal David Beaton (1539-46) strongly opposed the progressive move towards closer political ties with Henry VIII’s Protestant England. He made a statement by burning Wishart in front of this very castle in 1546.
•
In response Protestant lairds stormed the castle and killed Beaton. The siege that followed resulted in the creation of the castle’s most remarkable features, an underground mine and counter-mine.
•
The mine was dug by Regent Arran’s troops from outside the castle. The Protestant rebels began to dig their countermine from the inside.
•
These underground passages of medieval siege warfare are unique. So when you visit, be sure to descend into the mine’s and get a sense of the dramatic events that once took place here.
•
The mines, along with the terrifying ‘bottle dungeon’ are among the most important medieval siege works surviving in Europe. The dungeon is a dank and airless pit carved out of the solid rock. Beaton’s body was thrown in here after he was murdered.
