In Scotland this week the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian) has been meeting in General Assembly. Although some would claim that, as a church, we haven’t progressed much, there did seem to be a new willingness to work together. Many of the Councils reported on similar themes and priorities and there are real possibilities for more collaborative and cohesive work in the future. Those who attended the Assembly have much to share with congregations this week and the themes of faith and forgiveness are wonderful starting places.
Where are you in your preparations this week? Do you have something to share or do you need some help. Whatever stage you’re at, we welcome you and invite you to introduce yourself. With a little faith and collaboration we can discern God’s word for our contexts today.
The worship theme for our General Assembly was People of the Way. We journey, with God and with each other, on the road in which God leads. There is always room for more, so welcome as we journey with our texts this week.
