On the morning of Monday 13th June, we posted an article on our website blog, commenting on the recent Church of Scotland General Assembly. The timing of this piece, given part of its subject matter, has been criticised as being insensitive and inappropriate in the light of events in Orlando, Florida. For that we apologise.

There are many, many people hurting deeply at this time as the result of this violent and unjustified attack. Such violence against any human being is unacceptable and our response is a clear and unequivocal condemnation of these acts.

We grieve for those who have lost their lives, we mourn with those who have lost loved ones, and we pray for all who are grieving the loss of loved ones, for those currently in hospital in pain and distress, for those who seek to help and treat them and for all who feel threatened by what has happened.
