The Rev Dr Harriet Harris, convener of the Scottish Episcopal Church’s Doctrine Committee, introduces the Grosvenor Essay The Church and Scottish Identity, which was launched last month at General Synod.
Dr Harris says: “This Grosvenor Essay has been prepared in the months leading up to the 2014 Referendum on Scottish Independence. It is intended for use both before and beyond the Referendum, whatever the outcome. How the church contributes to questions of identity is always a pertinent matter, and is rooted in the church’s understanding of its own identity in Christ. This Essay is forged in a specific historical and social context, from which we gain insights about the Church’s calling and identity in any time and place.”
