That would be an ecumenical matter

Minute-by-minute updates on the Church of Scotland General Assembly here, for anyone interested. It's good to see which issues are being raised, although whoever writes these notes seems to be rather reticent. Today it seems that what might have been an interesting discussion about communion turned into a discussion about the new hymnbook. Oh well. But well done the new moderator.

UPDATE: The debate on the Ecumenical Relations report was incredibly boring, and nothing of substance was raised. Ho hum. But there was a nice speech from Mgr Henry Docherty, who has apparently been the person most involved in relations with the Kirk from the Catholic end; he's celebrating fifty years of being a priest. Gosh.
