Church and Society News – July/August 2011

The Summer 2011 edition of the newsletter from the Church of Scotland’s Church and Society Council starts with a feature on sectarianism. The Council states “Sectarianism isn’t about ‘them and us’ – there is only us. We are all part of the same human family; we are all neighbours sharing this land together” – read what the Moderator of the General Assembly has to say on the issue.
Next year the Special Commission of the Purposes of Economic Activity will report to the General Assembly. The Council wishes to hear our views on four vital questions (below) and suggests “Why not discuss these at your House Group, Kirk Session, Youth Group or Guild?” and invites us to send our answers and other comments to: fbrown [at]
1 How important do you think economics is in the life of each of us?
2 Do you think the Church has anything to say about the current economic situation?
3 What would you change about the current economic system?
4 What can the Church do to ensure that our economic system serves the needs of the poor?
And, of course, there is much more in the newsletter which can be read from Church and Society News – Summer 2011
