Scotland lost a great man last week to cancer. Andrew Lawson Johnston, artist, Christian leader, and engraver to the Queen. Andrew was a key person, if not THE key person in the charasmatic New Wine movement in Scotland. His passing will be sorely felt all over the UK. More info here.
I had the privilege of meeting Andrew on a few occasions, including:
– once in his stately home over a tea with his lovely wife Sylvia and brother Phil, who is a popular songwriter. Doug Pagitt was with me at the time and we sang some of Phil’s choruses at the table.
– 6 years ago, at his church in Alford, where Andrew led a children’s communion segment of the church service that was so uplifting and honoring to children that our whole family still remember it.
