Event description

Description

An introduction to the Book of Ruth - Keynote Speaker: Dr Rachel Starr

Rachel Starr is Director of Studies (undergraduate programmes) at the Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education, Birmingham. She completed doctoral studies in Buenos Aires, researching the relationship between theologies of marriage and domestic violence. With David Holgate, she is author of the SCM Studyguide to Biblical Hermeneutics (2nd edition, 2019) which is used in the Worship Leaders and Local Preachers course.

You will have opportunity to choose two of the following workshops:

  • Ruthless readings – where are we in the text? (Dr Rachel Starr)

This workshop will explore connections between our own experiences and the book of Ruth. We will explore the question: Where do we find ourselves in the story of Ruth? The workshop will include an opportunity to ‘write back’ to one of the characters in the story.

  • An interactive Bible Study on Ruth (Revd Ben Clowes)

Rev Ben Clowes, has produced a set of interactive Bible Studies on the Book of Ruth linking in with the Connexional Year of Testimony. During the session Ben will explore how he structures a Bible Study group along with using some of the material for one of the sessions in the studies as an example. Participants will be able to take away a full set of four Bible Study sessions.

  • Preaching Ruth (Revd Graham Jones)

Compelling story, great characters, complex relationships and timeless themes – what is God wanting to say through this brief but rich text and how can we help it connect with people’s lives here and now? An opportunity to share creatively, to be inspired and to plan our three points (or not!).

  • Local Arrangements and Ruth (Mr Tim Baker)

Tim Baker, editor of The Vine resources, offers some thoughts, ideas and creative suggestions for how you could engage with the book of Ruth and the Bible Month resources in local arrangements. Come along to be inspired, encouraged and equipped to take ownership of worship during Bible Month 2020!


Cost: £10, lunch provided. Booking is fully confirmed once payment has been made.
