Edinburgh 2010 comes to Perth


Great celebration of Edinburgh 2010 in Perth today. 100 years ago missionary organisations came together in Scotland in the recognition that Christian mission could only advance with a united front. The modern ecumenical movement was born. We celebrated at St Peter’s & Emmaus (a combined Uniting Church/Anglican parish) with the help of choirs from local Indonesian and Korean congregations, a reading from Matthew 28 in Aramaic (courtesy of the Syrian Orthodox Church) and a challenging message from the Anglican Dean of Perth, the Very Rev’d John Shepherd.

A year or three into the sizzliing sixties. Still learning that the more I know, the more I don't know. What I do know, however, I know well.

  1. Great to hear of the celebration in Perth on the Lord’s Day. Here in Kentucky I’m afraid there were very few congregations even aware of Edinburgh 2010.

    Like your blog and enjoyed visiting today. Because of your post I found myself rejoicing in your combined Parish worship with greatful heart to God for His presence among His people.
