Stormy weather is causing widespread flooding and travel chaos throughout Scotland this week. Cyberspace is filled with laments about plans disrupted and lives inconvenienced. The majority of us commenting on the bizarre disruption have warm homes to return to - or in which to remain. But what about those who have no such luxury, those for whom reaching over to switch on the kettle, make another cup of tea and wait out the storm is not an option?
Our faith calls us to be alert to the plight of others. to reach out and care "for the least of these".
But then, faith is pretty inconvenient too, is it not?
