A bit of a naughty one

The Meenister’s Log

The “bible” of rules and regulations for The Church of Scotland is called “Practice and Procedure in the Church of Scotland” edited by Cox – and known simply as “Cox”

At a particular Divinity lecture, the Professor is reputed to have said to the (all male) students in the class, “Now, gentlement, please take out your ‘Cox’ and place it on your desk”



I once attended a healthcare chaplains conference in England, where the vast majority of those attending were C of E.

At one point, we were divided into the usual small groups to discuss some topic – it may well have been about sexuality – and one chap euphemistically used the term “bashing the bishop” to which this lovely naive young female chaplain said ‘why didn’t he like his Bishop?”  Doh!
