A slideshow of photos by Daily photographer Megan Tan, taken as the Rev. Alastair Symington, senior minister at Troon Old Parish Church in Scotland, prepares for Chautauqua’s first Sunday morning sermon.
When you think of being chaplain to the Queen of England, you don’t normally expect a person who also has a hand in everyday ministry to a young man convicted of armed robbery, but the Rev. Alastair Symington has kept a presence in parish work while carrying a title that only 32 other people hold. Symington will be the chaplain for the first week of the 2011 Season at Chautauqua. He will preach at the opening worship service at 10:45 Sunday morning.
