God – mysterious, ineffable, spiritual, (for some) experienced, (for some) an absence, a short word and a big idea – is not an easy topic for discussion. Can we say anything? In this course we will explore the importance of both silence and speech as we engage with a wealth of possibilities: metaphors, paradoxes, creating new language, learning and borrowing, and reclaiming old words for our own purposes. Based on Rhiannon Grant’s book, Telling the Truth about God (Christian Alternative, 2019).
Talking about God – By Woodbrooke, Friday 17 April – Sunday 19 April 2020
£170.00 – £245.00
This event is for members of Quaker nominations committees.
How can we root ourselves in good practices of discernment while responding to the particular issues that face us? Nominations are at the quiet heart of the way we live together as Friends, when we listen faithfully to the Spirit. We will include the practical aspects of being ‘on nominations’. Friends can expect a renewed insight into the potential of nominations to strengthen meetings and enable them to flourish.
