True Love

St Giles’ Cathedral looms large upon a city which, if any other, would render it an outsider. It is a 1,000 year old construction, of achingly vulnerable yet discernibly strong design. Despite its imposing presence, it is just another parish church of the Church of Scotland. John Knox said, “Live in Christ, die in Christ, and the flesh need not fear death.” Appropriately, Knox has been buried within St Giles’ for more than 500 years.
