Learning Biblical Hebrew with Dave Wheeler

Occuring
Every Monday at for 1 hour, 30 mins
Venue
Address

Learning to Read Biblical Hebrew course that I'll be running from after the February half-term (i.e. starting Monday 19th Feb). The sessions will take place in Fairwinds, below KCM church on Market Street in Falmouth; classes will be 7.30pm-9pm weekly.

The course is free to attend - though participants will need to buy the textbook (Amazon or Abebooks). The textbook is "The First Hebrew Primer: The Adult Beginner Path to Biblical Hebrew) - it's £34 new on Amazon (here), or older versions (which are fine) on Abebooks - the textbook would last for up to 3 years of study. For the first 3 of our sessions together, there will be some, but minimal, use of the textbook so that people can try first before they commit.

Fairwinds pattern of prayer and Holy Communion Ben Hudd

I was challenged a few years ago (bearing in mind that I'm from an open evangelical background) by the centrality of the Eucharist in mission. In response, I've begun to develop a rhythm of Holy Communion at Fairwinds, as well as prayer. Each 1st & 3rd Tuesday and 2nd and 4th Thursday of normal term time at 9.15 am there is the opportunity to come together to celebrate Holy Communion at Fairwinds, with mission and justice as a theme (we'll never run out of Bible passages for that!); the methodist church is also hoping to join with this as well as other churches of differing denominations if that so wish. I have written a liturgy (enclosed) that both uses Common Worship, and where there is flexibility permitted, the themes of mission and justice are drawn upon.

Whilst I appreciate of course that churches will wish to keep their own midweek worship, I'm hoping that as many as possible will feel able to participate together in unity around a shared table in surroundings that are different for some perhaps.

Each Wednesday there will also be prayer at Fairwinds from 9 am - 10 am that all are welcome to join in with. This will have a missional focus and be instantaneous in nature (ie there will be no framework of liturgy used) and will draw upon what has been happening during the previous week.

The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion at Passiontide for many centuries because they enable us to engage actively with the path of suffering walked by Jesus. They originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and
wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path from Pilate’s house to Calvary, pausing for prayer and devotion at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries, and, ever since then,
Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.

In the late fourteenth century, the Franciscans were given the responsibility for the holy places of Jerusalem and they erected tableaux to aid the devotion of visitors. These kinds of images are now commonplace inside churches around the world, and
occasionally outside them too.

Jesus said, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it.” (Luke 9:23-34)
