Meeting to enjoy an afternoon tea and discuss a book that has been read during the past period. Covering interesting topics and including books from the Bible, the discussion group is hosted by Mary Heinemann.
The Reading and Discussion Group has begun meeting again after a break of about 2 years. In the past approx. 16 years we read mostly “progressive” theology, for instance early on we read Marcus Borg and John Shelby Spong. We found Karen Armstrong very informative. We have read John Dominic Crossan, Andrew Mawson,Sallie Mc Fague and Richard Rohr. We have read about the Jesus Seminar and “The Hospitality of God” by Brendan Byrne. It has been very stimulating to our faith and very open discussion. Recently we met and looked at an article/excerpts by Hugh Mackay from his most recent book “The Good Life”.
Our meetings begin at 7.30p.m. and we are finished by 9.30p.m. We have always met in a private home and will be having an end of year meal on December 13th. Ring Mary 0409 060 846 if you would like to attend the group meeting(s).
