Nec Tamen Consumebatur
Alec Shuttleworth reads a reflection 'Nec Tamen Consumebatur' (It was not however consumed). written by Albert Bogle with music by Campbell Dye.
Nec Tamen Consumebatur is the motto of the Church of Scotland, The Latin used in the emblem translates into: Nec: it was not; tamen: however; consumebatur: it was consumed. The wording refers to the Book of Exodus in the Bible when Moses encountered the burning bush. No matter how much it burned, it was never consumed by the flames.
