Rev Martin Johnstone
At the end of October the Priority Areas Secretary of the Church of Scotland, Martin Johnstone, spent three days in Rome in the midst of some very esteemed company.
He was there with waste pickers, slum dwellers and small farmers from across the world. Oh – and a few bishops, cardinals and Pope Francis were there too.
It was the first gathering of the Global Meeting of Popular Movements, an extraordinary gathering hosted by the Vatican.
