Lent 2020 "Beginnings and Ends."
Over 5 sessions the group based their reflections especially on the first chapters of Genesis and sought to relate the global medical crisis we are all caught up in but also the Global Climate and Environmental Emergency that is ongoing. Our aim was to build upon the inputs by group members and to reflect on themes linked to the UN and Climate Emergency, Creation, stewardship, plastic waste and general pollution and environmental destruction, and also using an excellent resource of The Bible Society on the theme of debt and indebtedness. Again just how topical this would be we at the time of composing the series had no way of knowing. I will now do a brief summary of the theme and texts for each session then it is over to you if you wish to read through the papers. Any feedback would be wonderful.
Can I thank group members for their willingness, as always to contribute but especially in writing these papers.
This made for a fascinating course for this particular Lenten season and took us through what has been a truly novel experience of the season and also of Easter. We would love to have your thoughts too.
Take care , keep safe, God Bless you one and all, Graham (Hardwick)
