The power of the Church lives in the gospel

The Very Rev Albert Bogle explains why the core message of the Church is the way ahead.

AN email dropped in my mailbox. It was from a fellow minister.

One of his elders had given up on how we in the Church of Scotland do church. In the email he explained that the elder had found great help and encouragement from Sanctuary First. He was asking me if Sanctuary First had a Kirk Session she could transfer into and join?

The point is if we did have a Kirk Session, I’m sure the elder would not have accepted the invitation. Too many of us in the church are still bickering with a broken machine. Our Lord has told us we can’t put new wine into old wine skins. I sincerely believe the call is out to all of us in leadership within the Church to recognise we are in the midst of a great technical, cultural and spiritual tsunami.
