And you could live in Edinburgh and help a new church plant get off the ground! Only joking, if you are from the States, St Andrews is an amazingly beautiful place as is the whole of the Fife Coast, I work for this Diocese of the Scottish Episcoiopal Church and if you are Anglican and interested I would be happy to put you in touch with the SEC churches in St Andrews
