The April 2013 edition of the Church of Scotland’s Church & Society Council newsletter looks forward to some of the issues that will form part of the Council’s report to this year’s General Assembly of the Church, which convenes in Edinburgh in May.
As the newsletter states: “Our work and prayer, action and reflection are seen through the lens of priority to the poorest and most marginalised. The General Assembly is a chance for the Church to debate political, economic and social issues, and to set the direction for future thinking.”
There is a reflection on what the term ‘human rights’ means for us as Christians, a look at the potential impact of Scottish independence on the church and on society, a report on the concept of a ‘promised land’, an update on the myths that abound about poverty, and much more.
