End of Life issues Presentation and Service

Last night I was at the evening service at St Andrew's Parish Church in Bo'ness where members from churches in the neighbourhood met to listen to a talk on end of life issues by Dr. Murdo Macdonald. Dr Macdonald is the policy officer of the Society, Religion and Technology Project at the Church of Scotland. He presented us with a much needed update of the current legal framework for assisted suicide in Scotland and the differences between the Scottish position and the position in England. His comments were based on the End of Life Issues report to the General Assembly last year.
After the talk, there was the possibility for questions and also prayer as some of the issues talked about were intensily emotional.
