The new term has seen a plethora of events dropping into my inbox so there are THREE pages of Diary Dates this month. No-one can do it all, but I hope you will find one or two things of particular interest to you among this myriad of ideas for putting our faith into practice.
Two highlights for us are:
The Season of Creation, 1st September – 4th October
This year’s theme is “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” As the Psalmist declares:
“The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims God’s handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge…their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the Earth
and their words to the end of the world.”
(Psalm 19: 1-4)
Westminster Social Justice and Peace Forum ‘To Accompany Refugees’, 17th September, 10am-1pm.
Join Bishops Nicholas Hudson and Paul McAleenan along with guest speakers including Megan Knowles (Jesuit Refugee Service) and Teresa Clarke (St Alban’s Hostel Visiting Group), for sharing and discussion of our response to the worldwide movement of peoples.
