Our Standards and Traditions in Worship

The Rev A Stewart Todd, MA, BD, Minister at North Leith Parish Church, Edinburgh

This is a paper designed to examine the standards and traditions of worship in the Church of Scotland in the light of what could be offered, and what might need to be safeguarded, in the event of any future “rapprochement” between denominations engaged in the ecumenical movement. Stewart Todd rehearses for the reader or listener the freedoms and the restraints of the preparation and offering of worship within scriptural and dominical authority, by way of Cullmann, Lohmeyer, and Brunner amongst others. His reflection on post-Reformation worship in Scotland is open and honest and at times painful, but it is done lovingly and with confidence in the future.
