Autumn Discussions

 ‘Inspired to Follow:     Art and the Bible Story’

Mondays:   September  16 : 23 : 30  and October 7

           This year we will be using a resource to help people explore the Christian faith, using paintings and Biblical story as the starting points. It’s been created by St Martin-in-the-Fields in partnership with the National Gallery. The course uses fine art paintings in the National Gallery’s collection, along with a theological reflection and a Biblical text, as a spring board for exploring these two questions:

How can I deepen my faith in God?

What does it mean to follow Jesus today? 

The sessions are stand-alone so it doesn’t matter if you cannot come every week.

September 16th:    Creation - looking at an Italian Florentine painting          from 1430

September 23rd:    Abraham and Isaac - looking at a 19th century           German painting

September 30th:    Moses and the Law – looking at another Florentine painting from 1500

October 7th:           The Prophets – looking at a 17th century French     painting.

We will meet in the Link at 7.30pm with tea/coffee and cake, followed by the course.   We will finish by 9.00pm.

There will be a sign-up sheet on the Fellowship Noticeboard (so we know how much cake to bring)
