The Business Committee met in special session for two hours yesterday. The matters under consideration were further reform of the Presbytery, and the General Assembly’s instruction for Kirk Sessions to “reflect on the state of decline of the national church.”
With regard to the latter, the Committee discussed how best to facilitate conference involving all Kirk Sessions, and some proposals will be further considered at the regular Business Committee meeting next week.
The “Review question” followed on both from the review advocated by the Christie report of 2014, and the Presbytery Review pilot scheme in which Hamilton took part. A number of ideas were “floated” and will receive further consideration.
