December 2009 Newsletter

The death of PCN's honorary adviser, hymnwriter, Fred Kaan, prompts a couple of articles in this edition. There a tribute from two members of PCN who, like Fred, are members of the United Reformed Church and a transcript of a speech given by Fred's wife, Anthea, to the PCN AGM in October. Reflecting the season, PCN vice Chair Mary McMahon gives us food for thought at Christmas and Dorothy Haughton, a Unitarian, looks at Christmas from her viewpoint. PCN's outgoing Hon Secretary, Jill Sandham, writes of what it means to be a progressive Christian and Hugh Dawes, the outgoing PCN Chair, writes a challenging article on looking for reliability in scripture. There are the usual reports from PCN' groups and articles reflecting Bishop Jack Spong's autumn lecture tour, sponsored by PCN.
