Discussion Mondays in minister’s study – 1 to 2pm
Starting Monday 19 August, you are invited to a small group meeting on Mondays between 1pm and 2 pm. There will be a review of the previous day’s morning sermon and a discussion of the readings for the following Sunday. The questions explored will be – “What happened with/to you during the sermon?” and “What questions, events, stories are awakened for you from the readings for next Sunday?”. You don’t have to come every week and Kerry might not be available every week, but we will meet as often as we can. An informal interactive gathering. Membership will change from week to week.
One of our members, Liam McIvanney, was interviewed on radio this week with some of his favourite music. You may like to hear Liam. https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/afternoons/audio/2018709687/bookmarks-crime-writer-liam-mcilvanney
