Quite a bit has happened since the disastrous decisions taken at the recent General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. The following is a collection of articles, blog posts and opinion pieces in the press that have resulted. I don’t claim they are exhaustive by any means.
The last link is not directly connected with the decisions that were made, but its contents will no doubt become important as events play out in the next couple of years.
Perhaps I will get to comment in more detail on the contents in the near future.
