Calibration for Mission – Mark 1:35
Sermon by David Meredith
Some distinctive features of the rural situation with regard to mission
The February 2020 World Mission Lectures at ETS focussed on the topic Mission in Rural Communities.
We were joined for the day by three experienced ministers who are deeply committed to mission in rural communities: David Meredith, Mission Director of the Free Church of Scotland, Donnie G. Macdonald, Minister of Portree and Bracadale Free Church and the current Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland, and Ivor Macdonald, minister of Coatbridge Free Church.
The programme began with a welcome and introduction from Dr Alistair Wilson, Coordinator of the ETS Centre for Mission, followed by a sermon by David Meredith.
Then followed two sessions focussing on the theme for the day: Donnie G. Macdonald spoke on ‘Beautiful things are born in Bethlehem’ and Ivor Macdonald spoke on ‘Some distinctive features of the rural situation with regard to mission’.

ETS holds four World Mission Days within the academic session. These days, two per semester, are set aside to hear God’s word, explore issues in mission, and spend time in prayer together as staff, students and interested friends.
