Wed. Night Bible Study: Job
We will walk though this book alongside noted Old Testament scholar David Hester. We will focus on the difficult questions raised in Job: where is God in the worst moments of our emptiness? What are we to do when experience casts doubt on what we have always believed? Where in the world is justice? We will look for connections between the ancient text and the world of today, joining in with Job's search for hope and healing.

"The experience of God's presence (in Centering Prayer) activates our capacity to perceive Him in everything." - Fr Thomas Keating. Join Centering Prayer in the Parish Hall.  All are welcome.
