Summary of the group’s meetings for September - November 2015
Recently our meetings have focused on the new Eight Points and in particular the eighth point. This led us to discuss suffering with respect to the way religions interpret this basic human experience. For this meeting we drew on the thoughts of Brian Mountford in ‘Perfect Freedom’ and Richard Holloway in ‘Between the Monster and the Saint’. Having considered suffering in some depth we decided to re-examine the role of prayer at our December meeting and we shall do so using Tony Windross’s chapter on Prayer in his ‘The Thoughtful Guide to Faith’. Our next few monthly meetings are likely to continue to use chapters from Tony’s book to stimulate our thoughts.
