ST ANDREW’S CHURCH CHIPPENHAM
BEGINNING IN THE WEEK OF 19TH FEBRUARY 2018
“On the Third Day”
A new 5-session ecumenical course for discussion groups written by Bishop John Pritchard.
The resurrection is the Big Story that turned a little Jewish protest movement into a world-transforming religion. And yet by Easter Monday we’ve almost forgotten about it and are planning our summer holidays. How can we re-capture the explosive power of the resurrection that ricocheted around the world? How can we live in the glow of resurrection and be an Easter people? How can ‘there and then’ become ‘here and now’?
1. Have I got news for you!
2. So what? The implications of the Resurrection
3. ‘Let him “Easter” in us’
4. Celebrating and praying Easter
5. A risen Church
The course booklet includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion.
Simon Stanley puts questions to the participants on the course audio: Revd Prof Tom Wright, NT scholar and former Bishop of Durham; Paul Vallely, journalist and broadcaster; Revd Ruth Gee, former President of Methodist Conference and Bishop Libby Lane.
If you would like to join a group, please have a look at the list below, and then let Eryl know which group you would like to join by Sunday 11th February, so that we can print off notes, prepare the groups and give the details to members and leaders. The course of 5 sessions begins in the week beginning 19th February.
