The first article that caught my attention in the May edition of Life & Work was entitled ‘The hidden Christians’, in which Steve Aisthorpe, Church of Scotland Regional Mission Development Officer for the Highlands and Islands, describes the roots and inspiration for his academic research which has been distilled in highly readable format for general consumption in The Invisible Church, published this month by Saint Andrew Press, and already into its second printing.

In this article Steve shares with us first of all the very real life situation that led him to research this phenomenon – Christians he had known in a particular Highland parish who, during the 12 years in which he and his family had served the Lord in Nepal, had severed their links with the local church, while, at least in the case of a number of them, retaining a living faith.

A simple question but one which can be answered in a number of ways depending on your philosophical approach to the question, your love or otherwise for technology, or even the ability to state the obvious!

So, is the answer

  • a good wifi connection?
  • a message which needs to be passed on?
  • you to talk and me to listen (or the other way round of course)?

Clearly, all of these are correct and important.
