Four SEI students joined fifteen candidates from the Church of Scotland for a study tour in Rome. They write: ‘This trip leaves ecumenical, historical and spiritual resonance within us as we return to Scotland for our continuing formation. In addition to the deep ties of friendship formed with the CoS candidates, we had a wonderful evening of worship and socializing at the Scots’ College (where the Scottish candidates in the Roman Catholic Church train) and a visit to the Waldensian College (the main Reformed Church in Italy). Historically, the overlapping of the centuries is captured in both the civic and ecclesial architecture of Rome and the stories of humanity are written on almost every wall of this “eternal city”.
