A surprise conversion

The Very Rev Albert Bogle explains how social media offers the opportunity to live out the Gospel.

THE inbox pings, the Twitter feed grows more followers; Jesus is still in conversation with the world and people are still curious about faith.

The Gospel knows no boundaries. It is not for a targeted demographic, a particular interest group, or a specific culture or people – Jesus cuts across all of it and speaks into the heart of every man. He invites us to be reconciled to God and our fellow human beings. He opens a way that invites all to discover what it means to be at peace with God. It is this way that is opened up because of his resurrection. Jesus is God’s new Adam. He represents a new world order. Christians are now called to believe that the Kingdom has come and we are the agents of the change bringing it about. It is this call to social justice and action that the church must embrace. Social media gives us the opportunity to speak up and live out the gospel.

About Life and Work

The month of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland will be almost upon us as this issue reaches our readers. Reports will be debated and pronouncements made on a wide range of issues. One thing will be evident: the wind of change will begin to blow over the shape of the Church. After a series of roadshows over the length and breadth of the land from London to Lerwick the feedback on the future of the Church is being carefully analysed and considered.
