Your chance to have a say.
I hope you have noticed the piece on the Church of Scotland’s website in which intimation is made that the Committee to Nominate the Moderator is now inviting nominations for the 2022-2023 Moderator of the General Assembly.
All of the necessary details are on the website so there’s no need for me to repeat them here, other than to underline that the closing date is Friday 13 August.
Most of all, my purpose in writing is to encourage you to participate in the process - by making it known as widely as possible, and by praying reflectively as to whether there might be somebody that you’d like to nominate.
I noticed that someone had commented on the Facebook post to the effect: ‘What’s the point, you won’t listen anyway!’ Let me assure everyone concerned; the Committee will listen! The idea that this process might be ‘stitched up’ couldn’t be further from the truth!
Finally, please uphold the Committee in your prayers as the members will themselves be praying for God’s leading in the task that is theirs.
With every blessing
The Very Reverend Dr W Martin Fair
Convener of the Committee W Martin Fair to Nominate the Moderator
