Rev Alison Britchfield addresses MSPs in the Scottish Parliament

A Church minister has urged MSPs to continue to bear the often frustrating and painful mantle of leadership to inspire others.

Rev Alison Britchfield of Tillicoultry Parish Church said she appreciated that it could be disillusioning when people misunderstand objectives.

But she added that the ability to make a difference made it all worthwhile.

Mrs Britchfield delivered Time for Reflection at the Scottish Parliament this afternoon, which heralds the official start to the business week.
