Seminar: School of Biblical Studies: What the Church can learn from Lamentations

Complaining Against God

One of the things that was lost when Christianity separated from its Jewish roots is the dialectic between trust and questioning which is very much alive in the Old Testament and to some extent in the New Testament. The Christian response became characterised solely by an unquestioning trust. This has moral and political implications. This session argues for the recovery of the tradition known in Jewish tradition as chutzpah – the audacity to express one’s complaints before God.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Cross cultural mission in our communities: God’s mystery faithfully revealed

In God’s mystery faithfully revealed we’ll see that the place God chooses to bring different nationalities together is in his church, the body of Christ. We’ll emphasize the importance of the local church in God’s purposes and the mystery that he has delighted to include those ‘far away’ along with ‘those who are near’. We’ll consider how this divine diversity might play out in our own local churches.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Jars of Clay: The community of weakness: how weak leaders strengthen the church

What does a church look like when their leaders are rejoicing in weakness? How does it change the atmosphere in our conversations and small group meetings? We’ll think through how embracing strength in weakness is vital to forming loving, Christlike church communities and begin to explore the practicalities.

Book recommendations: The J Curve by Paul Miller, The Joy of Service by Julian Hardyman

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Faithfulness in the Home: Faithful in marriage (Part 2)

Christians know that our marriages mirror the love between Christ and his church. How do we reflect the faithfulness that he has for us between ourselves? These two practical seminars are for couples to explore how to build godly faithfulness in prayerful and practical ways, reflecting the goodness that God has given us in each other and fighting the sin that so often drags us down.

This session will be available for catch up.

Tuesday 10:45

Bible Reading: Hosea: The Subversive Compassion of God

When God is not the Lion you thought he was – Hosea 4-5

It now becomes clear that God’s purpose for Hosea’s home life had profound resonances for Israel’s national life. Far from being the faithful and devout people that they imagined themselves to be, God’s prophet forces them to identify themselves spiritually with Gomer, the treacherous prostitute. He will come as a ravenous lion, not to protect but to judge. (5:14)

Book recommendations: Hosea The Passion of God by Tim Chester, The Message of Hosea by Derek Kidner, Love Divine & Unfailing by Michael P V Barrett, Hosea: An Introduction and Commentary by Robin Routledge

Evening Celebration: A truth-holding church

The future of the church – at least in Asia Minor – was threatened from without by persecution and within by false teaching, idolatry and immorality. The words of the risen Christ come, with similar pattern, in every letter. Although rooted in history, and particular, yet they are meant for wider audience and they are very contemporary.

In Revelation 2:12-29 we are introduced to Pergamum and Thyatira. Although one is characterised by faithfulness in the face of suffering and the other by authentic discipleship marked by faith and love, both put up with false teaching that has catastrophic consequences in idolatry and sexual immorality.

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.
