Finally found my way to Ayr River Gorge today. These are the covenanter steps at Peden's cove where, it is claimed, the Scottish covenanter, Alexander Peden preached to people across the river. As I walked the rest of the Gorge, I found myself wondering - Would I be so persistent in preaching the word as an outlaw? Of course not - although there has to be some attraction in not having to navigate church courts and traditions and sensitivities. But I know without a doubt that I am a fair weather preacher. No living rough for me!
