A taste of this year's (2018) Thinking Scripture event

This year we chose the theme of Wisdom Literature.

Fr Dixie gave us a general introduction. Dr Geoffrey Turner focused on Proverbs, Fr Dixie on Ben Sira and Sr Margaret on the Wisdom of Solomon.

We began each book with a general survey, then explored them further via the themes of ‘Living the Good Life’ and ‘The Nature of Wisdom’, supplementing the lectures as usual with discussions in smaller groups. Many of our participants were regular attenders and appreciated the stimulation of texts that were new to them.

We hope that we all ended the week wiser than we began it!

As always, we included a cultural element, with a musical meditation presented by Geoffrey, structured around the Mass, using settings by different composers for different parts.
Participants in September were also treated to some piano music played by Haydn Lee during the social evening, and we watched Leonardo di Caprio’s Before the Flood, a thought-provoking exposé of environmental problems. On a lighter note in September we saw Love and Friendship, an adaptation of an early short story by Jane Austen.

We also made the most of the local area, with participants visiting Cartmel and the Lakes, and a smaller group enjoying a challenging climb up Black Combe in June and a gentler walk near Kendal in September.

The group were also free to participate, of course, in daily Office and Mass. Thank you to Fr John W., Fr John M., Fr Ralph and Fr Dixie for presiding and preaching at these.

Next year’s courses, two full weeks as usual, will be on the theme of the Letters of Peter, James & John.

Book early to avoid disappointment - we are filling up already!

The dates are 1st-8th June and 28th September - 5th October 2019
