SCOTLAND 2020 LEADERS
A Note from Rev. Dr. Kathy Sizer:
I hope you will join me for this journey into the world of our Scottish Presbyterian roots. We’ll stand in cathedrals where reformers stirred deep passions, and we’ll pray on the wind-swept shores of St. Andrews. We’ll explore the beautiful legend-filled highlands, taste haggis (if you dare), and try to spot Nessie. I’m especially excited to introduce you to the ancient Celtic spirituality of the island of Iona–a “thin place” between heaven and earth. Our trip will offer a balance of guided touring, independent exploration, great fun, and reflective worship. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to enjoy the rich history and culture of Scotland with new and old LPC friends. – Kathy
A Note from Jim Wallace, Scotus Tours:
People are always telling me they would love to visit Scotland. Whether it is the majestic scenery of the highlands which attracts them; or our castles, churches and cities steeped in history; or maybe our proud tradition of hospitality – all these and more combine to make a trip to Scotland an unforgettable experience.
For people of faith Scotland also has much to offer. Christianity came to these shores no later than the sixth century. And the impact of the Reformation has extended far around the world.
I’m a native Scot and minister of the Church of Scotland. I’ve also served in the PC(USA). So I am delighted to be offering this tour. I want you to enjoy an outstanding trip; to see the real Scotland; to discover, in particular, our sacred heritage. And I run Scotus Tours to make that possible. – Jim
