Living with Difference
Wed 25 March at 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wed 1 April, 2020
The divisions exposed by recent elections are fresh in our memories. ‘Brexit’ is now a reality and the world seems to be ever more polarised. Against this background Archbishop Justin Welby has a vision for the church to model ‘disagreeing well’ and to be a reconciling presence in the midst of conflict. He has convened leading thinkers and peace-making practitioners to create a course to support these two aspirations.
Difference is a five week course to help us develop habits and practises which will enable us to cross divides, disagree well, practise forgiveness and be the community that God calls us to be. The aim is to help us realise our identity as reconcilers in our own unique contexts, being open to and celebrating difference as a virtue and not a curse.
Reconciliation is a central theme of Holy Week and Easter so the Difference course will an opportunity, during Lent, for us to prayerfully consider how we are being called to be reconcilers in our own households, workplaces and communities. Course dates: 4th, 11th 18, 25th March and 1st April, 7-9pm, the venue (TBA) will be central Bath.
