I do enjoy reading Donald J Morrison’s frequent contributions to this paper and take no exception to his most recent on Lutheran history and the moderator meeting the Pope. Objecting to a meeting between these individuals on the basis of events 500 years ago and the cost in Scottish lives is an interesting perspective.


I believe that Luther, and via Calvin, John Knox, didn’t set out to create a new church but sought to reform the Catholic church. It was broader historical events and Luther et al’s failure to achieve this change which led to the establishment of the Church of Scotland.


Perhaps the moderator was revisiting Luther’s ambition?
