Learning for Lent: ‘The Mystery of Everything’ (At Uploders Chapel)
During Lent a group of us will be meeting to think and talk about our faith. The Mystery of Everything is a new Lent course written by Hilary Bland, which takes the multi-award-winning film about Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, as its starting point. The discussions explore ways in which the mysteries of the universe and of everyday life – and the acceptance that we all have more questions than answers - can re-invigorate our faith and spiritual journey. (Revd Jan is in particular relieved to know that no great scientific knowledge is necessary for this course!) PLEASE NOTE: Courtesy of the Minister and Congregation, these meetings will take place in UPLODERS CHAPEL Refreshments will be available Everyone is very welcome but please let Reverend Jan know if you are coming so that she can order you the accompanying book: Cost £ 5.99
