“What’s Going On?” – 3 sessions to help us stop and think:
Tuesday eves 7.30-8.30pm: 21 December, 4 January & 11 January
Whatever you feel about the ‘COVID age’ we find ourselves in, we would all agree that the world has been turned upside down. It is unsettling to say the least; for some it is deeply stressful, even disastrous.
The aim of these sessions is to help us think through what God has to say about some of the aspects of life in our new society. There are many, diverse opinions out there. It is easy to fall out with people, even with those closest to us, over political decisions. Sometimes, we prefer to just ‘bury our heads in the sand’ rather than get involved in arguments. But we find ourselves no wiser, and therefore no less stressed.
These Zoom sessions are aimed neither to be divisive, nor to settle on a bland, meaningless middle ground. Instead, they are to help us
consider differing points of view in a balanced, reasonable way. We will consider some passages from the Bible to help us find secure
foundations, so that we can gain confidence as we face a controversial and confusing world.
Led by Revd. Andrew Goodman, Bishop’s Adviser – Healing and Freedom
