Christian life is about what and who we are just as much as it is about what we believe. One particular passage of the New Testament has always been crucial to thinking about Christian life: the ‘Beatitudes’, Jesus’s teachings in Matthew 5.3-10.
Our lent course for 2019 – called, Life Attitudes – is an engaging and accessible reflection on these Beatitudes and how they can shape our real lives in the real world. It’s not an academic course, you don’t need to know it all already, and there’s no test – each session will be a relaxed, fun and stimulating gathering open to everyone.
We’ll be running two sessions in Church each Wednesday from 13th March – one at 11.00am in the morning and another at 7.30pm in the evening. The course runs for five weeks. You are free to come to some or all of the sessions as works best for you, of course.
There’s no need to book, but it would be very useful to get a rough idea of how many we might expect at each session – so if you could please email email@example.com or sign your name up on the list that will appear at the back of the church, we’d appreciate it. You don’t need a copy of the book to take part, but if – like me – you like to have one to follow, then they are available from Church House Publishing at www.chpublishing.co.uk or by phoning 01603 785925. Just ask for Life Attitudes by Robert Warren and Sue Mayfield.
I’m thrilled that our ordinands Maggie and Jacquie and our Youth Worker, David have agreed to help run this course. We hope to see many of you there.
