We are a diverse group of men and women, mostly mature Christians, who meet each Monday to study God’s word. Our studies are based on prepared courses covering six weeks. The topics vary; some compiled by Jamie and Verity, and some adapted by Jan Capp.
Discussions are open and all members are encouraged to express their opinions. I sometimes have to close and discussion continue over afternoon tea.
When we started studying ‘Being Together’ the Roman Catholics in our group were concerned that it might be Anglican centred but we have all found the topic interesting and thought provoking.
We are aware of the evil of gossip, as against open discussion of concerns. Our group has developed into a safe place where people feel free to raise matters of concern. Free discussion with fellow Christians can be helpful in many ways.
Once a matter has been brought to light and viewed form different angles it may be proven to be unworthy of concern. Shared discussion may produce a solution that can be taken further.
Of course we need some wiser, mature Christians in our group to see that discussion doesn’t slip into gossip. We have those people. Next term we will be studying ‘Living Free’. We would love for you to join us.
