Honest Faith

6.30 - 8.30pm first Sunday of the month in the Lecture Hall 


We continue the DVD series 'The Human Spirit and The Times We Live In' in which world-renowned contemplatives, Sister Joan Chittister and Father Richard Rohr, take us deep within the human spirit to show us that the quest for spiritual life leads us unavoidably into our deep connection to all life and all people. 

On Sunday 7th August at 6.30pm we continue with the second part of Sister Joan's provocative lecture on the theme of 'God our Father, God our Mother, The Search for the Divine Feminine' and questions will include:

·        What is the cost of casting God in only the masculine form?

·        Does God punish and reward?

·        Does your church practice sexism? Do our churches teach sexism to our children?

         (Printed notes and some questions for discussion are available.) 

Some people sense that at its core, Christianity has something good to offer humanity. At the same time many have a sense that they are alone in being a "thinking" Christian and that "salvaging" Christianity is a hopeless task. What is needed is a safe environment where people have the permission to ask the questions they've always wanted to ask.

The DVD courses we follow seek to provide opportunities to explore the Christian faith for today's world considering a range of different topics with honest discussion where we are free to express differing views - thereby trying to offer an open-minded alternative to courses which attempt to give participants all the answers. 

Some of us support 'Progressive Christianity Network Britain' which provides help and resources for groups such as ours - please see their website: www.pcnbritain.org.uk

Sessions are held monthly on the first Sunday evening of each month in our Lecture Hall - please check our monthly Church Newsletter for up-to-date information and news etc. If you would like to join us you would be very welcome to come to any (or to all) of the sessions. Each session is complete in itself so don't worry if you can't come every time. A warm welcome with refreshments from 6.30pm (a voluntary donation of £2 per person towards general costs suggested) with the aim of finishing by 8.30pm.
