Edinburgh Diocese affirms commitment to unity

The Scottish Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Edinburgh affirmed a commitment to unity across the theological divide at its Diocesan Synod on 8 March 2008.

The Synod unanimously supported a motion by the Rev Donald Reid of St John the Evangelist Church in Edinburgh, which read:

“The members of this synod affirm that our experience is that we can hold together as brothers and sisters in the faith and that we do not wish to be forced apart. We acknowledge that there are sincerely held views which differ but we are determined not to be divided. We pray that God will call deeper truths out of our present experience. We commend this spirit of waiting on God to the wider Anglican Communion.”
