Promoting the Truth in the City of Discovery
It was a good day to visit Dundee, the City of Discovery. Dundee is the base of the exciting initiative Solas, which is an organisation very much needed to give a coherent presentation of the world view built on the dignity of the human person. I had a chance to meet the talented team that makes invaluable contributions on important social issues and I had the chance to discuss how we can promote the right to life in Scotland. Whilst I met the Solas team our Project Truth team was setting up in the centre of Dundee to promote that message on the streets of the City. I caught up with the energetic youngsters to find them engaging a steady stream of passers-by on the issue of abortion. It is encouraging to find how positively the pro-life message is received by the vast majority who are willing to think about it. At the same time our other team was doing the same work in Aberdeen with a similar positive response. Engaging in discussion in a courteous and logical manner proves that Solas and ourselves are on the right track in winning hearts and minds to the pro-life cause. The Solas website is worth a visit at www.solas-cpc.org and their magazine that can be subscribed to is a valuable forum for reasoned consideration of ethical issues.
