Late News – Complaint against Scott Rennie not upheld

Good news from the Church of Scotland – the case against The Rev Scott Rennie’s appointment has not been upheld by the General Assembly. He should be free to take up his post.

It is very good news. However, the Assembly is still to debate (on Monday at 4 pm) an Overture from Skye and Lochcarron Presbytery which states: “That this Church shall not accept for training, ordain, admit, readmit, induct or introduce to any ministry of the Church anyone involved in a sexual relationship outside of marriage between a man and a woman”

The struggle for justice is far from over. But tonight we must take heart from the Church of Scotland. This is a very significant moment in the struggle.

    It is a decision in line with the finest traditions of the C of S and in line with the words and the judgements of the really great figures of that denomination who fought for justice for all in the past – by some of whom I was privileged to be taught.

    Still I am holding my breath for tomorrow. God send his Holy Spirit to fill minds with love and light.

    Hi Kelvin, my daughter came back from Florence today. She came back with a copy of the local paper, Leggo, They covered this story in six lines on page five of the paper. They even said Scotland and not UK in the story.
