It seems a little inappropriate to say that a Eucharist was a tour de force. But if you wanted to get a feel of what the Scottish Episcopal Church is about, the opening service of our General Synod would be one place to look.  Last year’s service was a revelation, particularly in its use of music from around the world.  This was closer to home.  But there was  lots of music .. immediately singable by everybody .. space and grace … It was, as my colleague Grace used to say, ‘brisk with spaces.’ Congratulations to the Liturgy Committee and to Stuart Muir. I take a fairly simple view of these things. I think there is no hymn which is not improved by increasing its speed by 50%

For the rest, we were a quiescent lot. No questions on Minutes, Accounts, Budget or anything else for that matter. Tomorrow we are having a go at ‘The Mission of the SEC’ Surely everybody must have something to say about that!
