A minister channeled family drama to deliver an address with a difference to the Scottish Parliament today.

Rev Alan Sorensen of Wellpark Mid Kirk in Greenock regaled MSPs with stories of mishaps to illustrate how faith in God means that people might get knocked down but they'll never be knocked out.
