All around us today, we see and hear of conflicts and divisions in our society; between the haves and the have-nots; between entrenched views expressed over so many issues: climate change, immigration, same-sex marriage, Brexit, to mention just a few.
The Worship Consultation at Broadstone Methodist Church felt it would be helpful to have a number of Sunday morning services in which the Christian approach to some of these issues could be explored; and so in October and November we shall have a series of four services, each concentrating on one such topic.
The first will be on Sunday 6 October, when Hilary Windridge will lead our worship, thinking particularly of wealth and poverty. On 20 October, Colin Greene will explore what it means to be a tolerant society in today’s world. Our own minister, Sue Gowling, will be looking at gender and relationships on 27 October. On 3 November, Brian Tucknott will lead the last of the series on the Christian attitude to the environmental challenges facing all mankind.
All these services of worship will start as usual at 10.30am and all readers of Pivot are most welcome.
