Thinking for Living - Newcastle - 15 October 2011

9.30am-3.30pm at Church House, St John's Terrace, North Shields, NE29 6HS
A practical tool kit for encouraging growth and change

Jesus promises us life, life in all its fullness. Yet often that promise seems far away as we can become swamped with the pressures of everyday living. How does our faith help us to live with, on the one hand our feelings of inadequacy, our doubts, and on the other hand with our opportunities, our successes?

Over the last two years a number of clergy and Readers have been using a range of ‘thinking tools’ that have helped them come to terms with these questions about living. In our post-modern culture many people are put off organised religion yet research shows that they have burning, unanswered questions about their spiritual life. Many people find that they can be held back in their pilgrim journey by relying so much on their church role or on ritual that they fail to think. (How many of us have been worshipping and wondered how we had got the end of the Creed already?)

Having a thoughtful approach to our Christian life makes use of our God-given brains; and helps us to integrate Bible, faith and living. If this speaks to you and you have an interest in helping to foster learning, in individuals and communities, then this is for you!
