Study Groups

STUDY GROUP meets every Thursday at 10.am. See our Calendar on the HOME PAGE for Scheduled Meetings.

Meetings are held in the Church Lounge  

Currently Studying: Talking Back To The Bible.


The central message of Talking Back to the Bible is the possibility of meaning in our universe through relationship with God while recognizing the unavoidable risks implied by scientific discoveries, inevitable historical change, and the ultimate incomprehensibility of God from a human vantage point. The author uses personal experiences and the latest scholarly research as the Bible becomes the conversational partner recommended by Marcus Borg. Talking back to the Bible becomes an interactive, stimulating, and inspirational way to understand the ministry of Jesus and the books of the Old Testament.

 

MEDITATION GROUP

Weekly Meditation & Contemplation Group

We invite you to practice meditation with the support of a group. Our group uses an approach to meditation/contemplation based on the Christian tradition. Everyone is welcome, whether you are looking for a spiritual practice, spiritual companionship, have no affiliation with any Spiritual Tradition, but want to meditate for the many known health benefits.     We practice meditation sitting on a chair so it is suitable for all age groups and mobility levels.

The Hope – A Guide to Sacred Activism by Andrew Harvey.

This month:  THE LAW OF SACRED PRACTICE  “Continuing to do pioneering sacred work in a world as crazy and painful as ours without constantly grounding yourself in sacred practice would be like running into a forest fire dressed only in a paper tutu.” – Marion Woodman

We will look at: “The Practice of Prayer”. “Jesus did not meditate in the Garden of Gethsemane; he sweated blood and wept and prayed; anyone who comes to their own Gethsemane will find that in that harrowing garden, prayer will be their deepest support.” – Andrew Harvey

Monthly at a home at 7.30 pm. The next meeting is on  Monday 27 August 2018.
