A day conference Roots and fruits : Retrieving Scotland's missionary story, held in April 2009, took Edinburgh 1910 as its starting point and sought to examine the lived experience of people who were influenced by the movement that emerged from the World Missionary Conference. This article considers the papers presented at the conference, reflecting upon the legacy of Edinburgh 1910 in the implementation of mission policy. Thereafter, the response of individual people to obeying and developing God's call to be a missionary is considered, as well as mission amidst social and political change. Next, it seeks to determine whether there was a distinctively Scottish dimension to missionary involvement. Finally, it discusses seeking to serve God's mission today.
