Here's three who get my vote, the first's obvious and the other two have been influential in areas that might just be a bit tangential to Jim's focus - but maybe not:
Kathy Galloway - poet, community theologian, leader of Iona Community.
Elizabeth Templeton - philosopher, educationalist, prominent in the late 60s and early 70s in the Scottish ecumenical movement.
Margaret Forrester - one of the early woman ordinands within the CofS, the emergence of women's voices from the pulpit ought to be recognised.

I'm not being wholly frivolous in adding a fourth, J.K. Rowling. She's been a Scottish Episcopalian Christian since long before her writing career. It's too early to gauge her contribution and influence upon spirituality in Scotland but maybe worth considering.


Jim, I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but (Rev Dr, I believe) Myra Blyth had an influence on my growing spirituality when I was a teenager.
