Mission & Discipleship 69 – June 2012

The June 2012 edition of the newsletter from the Church of Scotland’s Mission & Discipleship Council contains details of over 20 events and resources of interest to church people throughout Scotland.
The events include a series of retreats that will take place at various venues throughout the Highlands and Islands during 2012 and Mission Shaped Ministry, described as a “one-year, part-time course designed to help people develop practical knowledge and skills which will help them engage their community with the Gospel.” There is news of this year’s National Youth Assembly taking place in Dundee in August and details about a one-day conference on ‘Sharing Faith in a Post-modern Age’ in Glasgow in October.
Among the many and varied resources available is Different Voices, an online magazine about church music in Scotland, produced by the Mission & Discipleship Council. It is for all those who sing in choirs, congregations and praise groups, play organs or other instruments, and all who plan, lead and choose music and hymns for worship. Also mentioned is Pray It Forward. This popular initiative features an attractive collection of high quality credit-card sized cards carrying a range of blessings inspired from scripture, for churches and individuals to give away free to others. The aim of the cards is to encourage and bless the recipient, and to encourage them to pray for, and bless, someone else in turn, ie to focus outward, and not just on what God can do for ME!
