Dominic Smart is minister of Gilcomston South in Aberdeen. The link below is to this month’s Minister’s Letter to his congregation. In it there is a very clear sighted recounting of the events at the recent General Assembly and a picture of a congregation seriously confronting the consequences of the decisions made there.
Quote Of The Moment
“God assumed from the beginning that the wise of the world would view Christians as fools … and He has not been disappointed. Devout Christians are destined to be regarded as fools in modern society. We are fools for Christ’s sake. We must pray for courage to endure the scorn of the sophisticated world. If I have brought any message today, it is this: Have the courage to have your wisdom regarded as stupidity. Be fools for Christ. And have the courage to suffer the contempt of the sophisticated world.”
