The latest news bulletin from the Church of Scotland’s Mission & Discipleship Council contains details of events and resources that may be of interest to church people across Scotland (and beyond). Among the events listed is one called ‘Work, Prayer, Thought’ led by Ian Fraser who, according to the newsletter, “is arguably Scotland’s greatest living theologian, whose theology is lived out in action, prayer and poetry”. This conference provides a rare opportunity to explore, in the round, the ways in which Ian’s gifts of thought and language have expressed themselves, in a unique witness for our times. It takes place in Stirling on 24 March and further details are available in the newsletter.
The newsletter also contains details of a variety of events being run by the Scottish Storytelling Centre to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, information about new publications from Saint Andrew’s Press as well as details of new worship and mission resources provided by the Mission & Discipleship Council.
