A Highland Welcome

A Highland Welcome

By Robert Burns, 1787


When Death’s dark stream I ferry o’er 

(A time that surely shall come), 

In Heaven itself I’ll ask no more, 

Than just a Highland welcome.

I’m on my way to Mason to officiate a memorial service for Lorna Ball Dunn, the mother of one of outstanding members at The Peoples Church. Lorna was fiercely proud of her Scottish heritage and, as providence would have it, shares a common ancestry with my MacDonald side. I’m honored to help celebrate her life and faith this morning and I can’t think of a better opening.
