Making Sense of the Bible this Summer in Durham
Making Sense of the Bible for Today is a lively multimedia guide to the gospels and their Old Testament background with many resonances for today. For those who know just a little of the Bible it provides an initial overview, linking up different parts of the Bible in new ways. This course is good preparation for further study of the gospels and is an ideal follow on to the Big Read.
Lindisfarne is running Making Sense of the Bible for Today throughout May and June at Durham Cathedral’s Education and Resources Centre. Sessions take place from 7:30-9:30pm on 9, 16 and 23 May and 6, 13 and 20 June 2011.
Although participants should aim to attend all sessions, notes will be available for any sessions missed (although attending less than four out of the six sessions will make the course difficult to follow). The sessions are led by Ali Miller and the Revd Alastair Macnaughton, Lindisfarne’s Developing Discipleship Officer. There is no charge for this course. You will need to bring a Bible, a pen and a notebook.
To book your place:
Making Sense of the Bible for Today is one of Lindisfarne’s short Developing Discipleship courses. These courses present a great opportunity for busy people to grow in their discipleship and can be delivered locally according to demand. Any church or chaplaincy may request a short course. Usually we ask that they be opened up to other churches in the area (with plenty of advance notice). Courses are led by two facilitators, one from the locality and the other from the wider region. They are usually free of charge!
