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.
