Saint Paul speaks of the three great virtues of faith, hope and love. We hear a lot about love. Who could disagree with loving one another? Faith is obviously essential if we are to have any sort of relationship with God and Jesus Christ.
But hope often gets forgotten about. Among the three great, or theological virtues, it often comes a poor third. On the other hand, it is central to the Christian faith: based on the Apostles witness to the resurrection, we look forward in hope to what shall be.
This autumn our course is on Hope. The first four sessions are based on a film based at key places around the island of Patmos, where the book of Revelation was written. Then we will have two further sessions on Mary Magdalene, the first witness of the resurrection, and will be basing our reflections on the recent film about her life. The course begins on Wednesday 25th September at 7.30 pm at Saint Giles Barn.
- 25th September: Do not be afraid
- 2nd October: The best is yet to be
- 9th October: Heaven on earth
- 16th October: The river of life
- 23rd October: Mary Magdalene
- 30th October: Mary Magdalene
Do please join us and help us reflect together on this central Christian virtue of hope.
