All are welcome to join the Gloucestershire group as we meet to finish off our discussion of the hallmarks of an open and affirming church. This discussion was based on a notice seen on the door of a church in Kent.

- Start Time:
- Zoom (Contact Andy for link)

- All of us
The remaining points are numbers 8 - 10 which are
8. We think that religion must be concerned with injustice and suffering, and see ourselves as a community helping to build a better world, bringing hope to those Jesus called the least of his sisters and brothers
9. We recognise that our ignorance is always going to exceed our understanding, and find more grace in the search for meaning than in the claim to certainty
10. We recognise that our faith entails costly discipleship and conscientious resistance of evil, as has always been the tradition of the Church.
I hope you will agree these are interesting ideas and I'm sure we will have a good discussion. So please come with your thoughts on each of these - feel free to support or challenge them. We will gather for a 1430 start and I will open the circuit ten minutes early. The Zoom link is available from me, Andy, (email above)
