Baking bread

Continuing the series celebrating 150 years of social care in the Church of Scotland, the Rev Dr Doug Gay uncovers the work of Threshold, a CrossReach project in Edinburgh.

“SO Doug, which football team do you support?” Eddie is a bit unsteady on his feet, but he is easily the chattiest person in the room. He has a big grin on his face and is not about to let this visitor to CrossReach’s Threshold Edinburgh project avoid answering some searching questions.

I live in Glasgow I say. “Celtic or Rangers?” As usual I take the diplomatic route and mention Thistle. I’ve never been to Ibrox or Parkhead and did at least take my son to Firhill a couple of times when we lived nearby. Eddie gives a broad grin and I think I’m off the hook. ‘Thistle!’ he says, ‘so what’s the name of their goalie?’

I’ve been exposed as a fake Jags fan. But Eddie is in forgiving mood: ‘So do you like Daniel O’Donnell?’
