A Friends of Foxhill Quiet Day
Led by the Revd Jenny Bridgman
Thursday 17th October 2019: 9.30am – 4.00pm
£10pp for Friends of Foxhill – Includes lunch and refreshments. Note: Whilst this is advertised as a Friends event, it is open to all and people are welcome to join the friends when they book.
In the following three short sessions we will explore the vocation of the People of God to be reconcilers and peacemakers in the communities in which we are placed:
- As society around us becomes increasingly entrenched, what of our scriptures, tradition and experience might help to bring healing and restoration to communities torn apart in recent years?
- What role is the Church being called to play in holding together increasingly diverse groups of people, and what greater hope might provide a focus for the restoration of these relationships?
- How might reconciliation work for each of us on the smallest of scales, as we each seek to be “reconciled to God” and to one another?
Each session will be followed by a longer period of silence for prayer and reflection.
Jenny is the Associate Vicar of Timperley, Assistant DDO in the Diocese of Chester, and a Spiritual Accompanier.
