St John's Waterbeach and All Saints' Landbeach have invited All Saints' Milton friends to join them for their Lent Course this year. Can I please commend this to you, as we have not yet engaged with the 'Living in Love and Faith' materials, and this is a good opportunity for us to do so. It is particularly helpful that Dr Eeva John, Enabling Officer for LLF for the Church of England (and a member of St John's), has kindly agreed to facilitate the first session on 8th march.
This Lent, we are offering the Living in Love and Faith (LLF) course produced by the Church of England. The five session course begins on Tuesday 8th March and concludes on Tuesday 5th April. All sessions are on a Tuesday in the Church, 7.45 - 9.15pm, and I’ll provide details of the course materials and sign up shortly.
The purpose of this course is to enable us as Christian communities in Landbeach and Waterbeach to participate in a process of learning and praying together as part of discerning a way forward in relation to matters of identity, sexuality, relationships and marriage. Dr Eeva John, a member of St John’s, and the Enabling Officer for LLF for the Church of England, has kindly agreed to facilitate the first session on 8th march.
The five sessions are as follows:
Session 1, March 8th. Learning Together: What does it mean to learn together as followers of Jesus Christ?
Session 2 , March 15th Identity: How does our identity in Christ relate to sex and gender?
Session 3, March 22nd Relationships: What kinds of relationships does God call us to?
Session 4, March 29th. Sex: Where do our bodies and sex fit in to all of this?
Session 5, April 5th. Life together: How do diversity and difference affect our life together as a church?
This promises to be a great opportunity for active listening and energising discussion, and I look forward to your valued participation.
Please pass cash or cheques (to Waterbeach PCC) to Katy or Paul.
