Tuesday 8 December
20u: P-café in Café Stuk (www.stuk.be/en). Bob will continue last week's excellent session on the ethics of the modification of human embryos. This recent BBC item popularises the science involved: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-34994180 The attached position paper from the Church of England offers some very useful and accessible background biblical and doctrinal material, although it is striking how far the debate has moved on since this document was produced in 2003. (Jack will be in Brussels tonight at a meeting of the heads of the recognised religions in Belgium: http://www.vocabulairepolitique.be/culte-reconnu/)
Wednesday 9 December
19u30: This week at HG we will have a session led by Jane for anyone interested in the possibility of ordination in the Anglican Church to come and air their views and ask questions. Jack will deliberately not be present to allow for total honesty!! This website is very helpful: http://www.callwaiting.org.uk/
Sunday 13 December: Advent 3
17u: Choir practice
18u30: Advent Carol Service: "Made in the Image of God" Come for a feast of carols, singing by the choir, readings from the Bible and a sermon by Reimund Bieringer. The theme of the carol service this year is Pilgrimage and Parables, following our sermon-series and the great art project which will be inaugurated during and after this service over refreshments. Come and bring your friends!
- Apparently, our views on politics and religion will be revealed by your answer to the following question when looking at the attached picture: Is this a circle? If you answer yes, then you are likely to be liberal in politics and religion. If you answer no, then you are likely to be a conservative in politics and religion. I'm looking forward to someone explaining this psychological determinism to me!
Have a great week,
