From the Revd Kenneth Cross
Sir, - We should not be perturbed, whatever the result is in
Scotland today. Jesus said: "My kingdom is not of this world." This
does not mean disengagement, but it is about perspective.
The referendum was about mere political borders. There is
nothing inherently sacred about either the UK or Scotland: if
either or both are to change, or not, then fine! We continue in
grace in the work of reconciliation and peace - our true Christian
vocation. This involves understanding the other (whether they
supported Yes or No) and disentangling our own prejudices with
And thank God that the process was democratic, with vigorous
debate, without widespread violence. That's worth celebrating.
