Let’s think about some BIG questions!

We had a lovely small wedding at Church recently, in the Anson (side) chapel. Afterwards everyone gathered at the back of church for friendly chat and to congratulate the couple. We enjoyed a glass of wine, sandwiches and cake, together. (What an alternative model to the highly commercial enterprises we often encounter today!)

QuestionsA young, 19 year old man, was stimulated by the setting to ask some very deep and challenging questions – and to share his thoughts too.

We had a stimulating conversation as Fr Ian and Kate, our parish assistant, were challenged to give their thoughts on such topics as euthanasia, contraception, attitudes to other faiths, homosexuality and exorcism.

Sometimes people are reluctant to share thoughts or ask the clergy about these important issues. That day we had a bagful! We thought it would be good to encourage wider thought and conversation about the topics and so we’re asking members of our ministry team to write their views on one of the questions here on the church blog and we’ll encourage comment through our church facebook group.

Be encouraged by the careful enquiring of the young man at the wedding, and share your thoughts!
