‘Bible and Mission’ the theme of latest SEI Journal

January 11, 2023

The winter edition of the Scottish Episcopal Institute Journal has the Bible and Mission as its theme, but it begins with a tribute to Professor Emerita Ann Lomas Loades CBE, a frequent contributor to this Journal, who died in December. 

Writes the Rev Dr Michael Hull, editor of the Journal: “‘Mission’ has been oft used in church circles since the latter quarter of the last century. For example, the Anglican Communion has developed – and continues to develop – so-called Marks of Mission since the mid-1980s. Christians use the word ‘mission’ in a plethora of ways. It is, therefore, imperative to consider the concept of mission, especially as it is found in the Holy Scriptures over and over again. Thus, Elizabeth Corsar has gathered a diversity of scholars to explore mission as expressed in the Bible for this number of the Journal, with an aim to assisting us as we continue to consider the vitality and vision of the church’s mission.”
