Scotland: Three Curses

Also in Edinburgh last week, I met with some ministry leaders. Paul and Fiona Thompson (Dreamday, Tartan Theology) and Peter Nielsen (Church Without Walls). I was talking to Paul about the Scottish and he said the three curses that need to be overcome in this country are:

Masochism, sectarianism and addiction. Next Dreamday is Dec 2

    Saw your question on Slice. Very cool of you to ask in the manner you did. I wish I could be as friendly. I should beI know… You and Dan are good at this.

    that’s interesting – I LOOOOVE Scotland – but when ever I am up there it just feels so spiritually dry! It really saddens me as I’m 3/4 Scots and would love to live there.

    Why Masochism? What exactly was meant by that?

  • he didnt expound on that but the Covenanters came to mind – as did the Scotish soldiers.
    Maybe the dark side to bravery and willingness to suffer is a refusal for assistance from others, and God?
