Paisley Abbey New Minister Appointment August 2021

A poem for the Installation of the New Minister Elspeth McKay.

The first Abess in Cloister´s grove, forcing change as Love demands

The poisoned chalice passed in sight, yet Love demands she does not drink.

A higher view where Angels dwell is upon her shoulders bright

No politics nor Kirk Board stern can stop unfolding Love.

Ancient stones do quake and fall, maternal Love doth take it´s place

Altars made of Stone fall down for Love is here.

Stones adorned by men, ancient saints bowed down to Love and it´s Man of Sorrows

The day demands woman goes forth to slay Goliath and put to rest honoured time traditions.

Love comes and rests with her own and all is still, where Love is found

Rainbows of Light as Love descends, the snake is found beneath her feet

Appoints the best.

Elspeth comes and Love draws near. Surely Divine Love is best seen in the heart of a woman

and Love is reflected in Love.
