Last week’s session of the Scottish Parliament was opened with Time for Reflection by Reverend James MacIver of Stornoway Free Church.

Mr MacIver was invited to deliver Time for Reflection by Na h-Eileanan an Iar MSP Alasdair Allan.

Time for Reflection opens business in the Chamber of the Scottish Parliament, and is presented by invited speakers from different faith communities every week.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the address was delivered via video link. Mr Allan commented: ‘I was delighted to be able to nominate Rev MacIver to deliver this week’s Time for Reflection and address the chamber of the Scottish Parliament.

‘He is a respected and well-known figure, and his address was characteristically thought-provoking and relevant to the issues that society and the world at large face.’
