New Term, 2017

Here are our Autumn dates, all starting at 7 pm: Friday 8 September; Friday 13 October; Friday 17 November.

Topics: Rae Pears from Urban Expression, who lives in Easton, may come to share with us about Urban Expression’s work, especially in Bristol, but we don’t yet know when! We also still have numbers 6 and 7 of the Core Convictions to look at.

6. Spirituality and economics are inter-connected. In an individualist and consumerist culture and in a world where economic injustice is rife, we are committed to finding ways of living simply, sharing generously, caring for creation, and working for justice.

7. Peace is at the heart of the gospel. As followers of Jesus in a divided and violent world, we are committed to finding non-violent alternatives and to learning how to make peace between individuals, within and among churches, in society, and between nations.

Conviction 6 could usefully be divided in two. Would anyone like to offer to lead a discussion on part of all of one of these, and suggest a date (which may need to be changed, depending on Rae)? Alexandra Ellish, Urban Expression development worker, also wants to come along one time but I think more as a guest not a facilitator.

Also, please put these dates in your diary if you haven’t already.

Anabaptist Theology Forum, Bristol Baptist College, Fri 21- Sat 22 October. Topics will include John Heathershaw, who is writing a book on Global security after Christendom; Andrew Francis on his latest book, OIKOS: God’s Big Word for a Small Planet (a theology of economy, ecology and ecumeny), and Stuart Murray-Williams, a historical session on Melchoir Rink.

Centre for Anabaptist Studies Annual Lecture, 21 November, Bristol Baptist College, Ian Randall on the Bruderhof.
