The first ordained woman to be named to the top position of the Church of Scotland says she hopes to promote Christian unity during her year in office. “I will definitely be focusing on Christian denominations. That will be the number one priority for me,” said the Rev. Sheilagh Kesting after the announcement that she is to serve as moderator of the Church’s general assembly from 2007 to 2008. “From a very early age I became aware of the tensions between the churches. That didn’t seem to me to be right,” Kesting was quoted as saying by The Scotsman newspaper. “Christians should be able to work together and live together.” (Ecumenical News International)
