Here is Rosyth, as well as being in an Ecumenical partnership (Methodists & Episcopalians) we enjoy excellent ecumenical relationships with all the local churches. “Our two sister churches, forged in the same turbulent history, are invited to work together, united in a common purpose and delighting in an enriching diversity,” said Fr McLuckie. “That work is not an organisational merger, but an organic and creative cooperation in the work of God’s mission of love, healing and reconciliation to the world."The proposed Saint Andrew Declaration between the Scottish Episcopal Church and the Church of Scotland is to go ahead after it was backed by a majority of members at General Synod.The Declaration gives formal recognition of the way that both churches have ministered to the whole of Scotland for many years, and how they will continue to work together. It was also backed by the Church of Scotland at its General Assembly last month, where the Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Most Rev Mark Strange, commended the Declaration to Assembly delegates.The Declaration outlines a series of acknowledgments and commitments between the Churches, and is the result of conversations that have taken place in the Our Common Calling Working Group.The Rev Canon John McLuckie spoke in support of the motion, along with the Rev Sandy Horsburgh, Convener of the Church of Scotland’s Ecumenical Relations Committee.The debate prompted considered arguments for and against the Declaration, with some expressing regret that “with a heavy heart” they could not support the motion because of concerns over ecclesiastical orders, although stressing they were in favour of ecumenism. However, the motion was carried and the Declaration will be signed and officially marked at a later date.The full report can be found here: www.scotland.anglican.org/synod-gives-backing-to-saint-andrew-declaration/ ...
