Sharing Scriptures and Stories - November
Mon 14 November 2016, 19:30 – 21:30 GMT
Four Session Programme: Monday evenings 7.30 - 9.30 pm - 12th September, 10th October, 14th November, 11th December
Every religious tradition has a rich resource of Scriptures and stories which bring comfort, challenge and coherence to our faith. The Sharing Scriptures and Stories sessions offer an opportunity for people of different faiths to come together and learn from each other’s beliefs and traditions. In a world where religion is sometimes used to divide and promote hatred, we want to show how religion can be a force for unity, peace and mutual flourishing. Leicester Cathedral and the St Philip’s Centre are working in partnership on this initiative, which we hope will spread throughout the city and involve a number of significant faith institutions from a range of different faith perspectives.
At these meetings participants will be invited to bring a short extract from a sacred text or a short story that is of particular significance to them. It may be a passage you regularly draw comfort from, one that was read at a significant personal occasion, or a saying that you find especially inspiring. Participants will be asked to introduce their chosen text and share it within a small group, who will then discuss it briefly. Each input will be for around 15 minutes.
Light refreshments will be provided
Requested donation of £5 per session (pay at the door)
