Newbury Group article for Dec 2013
Our group continues to follow a varied programme. We watched and discussed Howard’s moving DVD “Beyond Forgiving” – featured in the last issue of Progressive Voices. (Howard is also happy to facilitate sessions with the film for other local groups.)
Having completed the Living the Questions DVD series in early summer we agreed to explore further our understanding of the Bible. For our October meeting each member wrote a few lines on how our view of the Bible had changed over the years and we discussed these together. A study of Marcus Borg’s ‘Reading The Bible Again For The First Time’ will form part of our programme over the next few months.
We find our meetings lively and stimulating: each group member participating enthusiastically in discussions with questions and additions from their own experience of their new understandings. Individually we are stretching our own thinking whilst trying to make sense of our faith.
