No one else can play your part

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. You may ask why we are talking about that on the SU Scotland blog. Here’s why. Suicide is a leading cause of death in Scotland among people aged 15-34 years.

Under pressure

How often do we find ourselves identifying with the theme of the beginning of this Psalm – feeling attacked, under pressure, marginalised The reality is that, as God’s people, we can expect to feel like this until Jesus comes again in glory and every eye and heart recognises him as Lord of all.

The Big Celebration 2014

We had a fantastic day a few Saturday's ago as we celebrated 'the word at work in the world' at Lendrick Muir! Here's a glimpse of how the day went...

Rooted in the word

Welcome to this first blog post specifically aimed at those working or volunteering in an SU Group. What you do is so vital to the work of Scripture Union Scotland (and the kingdom of God!) and as a schools’ worker I want to do everything I can to support and encourage you in your role.

SUrf Camps Up

Our very first SUrf camp happened earlier this year at Scoughall! Brian tells us all about how it came into being.

Volunteers eye view

We love SU Holidays! We volunteer as group leaders, which means taking responsibility for a small group of young people for the week. It is amazing to spend time with them talking about God, having fun doing new activities, and being part of a unique Christian community for a week.

Summer fun

SU Holidays and Missions are nearly over for the summer and it's been awesome. Watch our slideshow for a glimpse of what we got up to.

A taste for politics

You might have noticed an excellent interview with Laurie Donaldson earlier this month in the new edition of Scottish Christian Broadcast. They have kindly given us permission to repost that interview for you in it's entirety here.

I can't but God can

In recent weeks I’ve been having a look at the story of Joseph. As I’ve been studying the life of Joseph, one verse has really stood out as a key verse in the whole of the 14 chapters from Genesis 37-50. It comes when Joseph is called to interpret Pharaoh’s dream.

Gods guiding hand

I was asked the other day if there was a verse in the Bible that I keep going back to. There are many, but this is one I have often gone back to since I first went along to Scripture Union when I was in P6.

Learning to be humble

When I say 'pride' what do you think of? Does it make you think about a spiritually weakening, self-centred view of the world?
