St Andrew’s Day

ScotlandToday is St Andrews Day, a day to remember St Andrew, one of Jesus’ disciples. St Andrew’s feast has been celebrated with various kinds of food in Scotland over the years ranging from wild hare, singed sheep’ head, haggis, and fish because Andrew was a fisherman when Jesus called him to follow. Some say any good Scottish food will do.

I have always been attracted to St Andrew because we share the same name, and because his first impulse when Jesus called him was to go and find his brother.

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
