Reflective Days

The Place of Silence – Jonathan Mosedale

We will reflect on our experiences of silence and look to the rich inheritance of Christian practice and theology, to ask what role has silence in the response of faith? Does silence help us remember who we are in a noisy world, or is it a way of evading uncomfortable truths?

Knowing your Herods – Andrew Lewis

We have all heard of the Massacre of the Innocents by king Herod. But how did he become king of the Jews? Weren’t the Romans in charge? And how is he connected with the Herod who married his brother’s wife and put John the Baptist to death? And who was the Herod who put St James to death and was then eaten up by worms and died? Is the Herod Agrippa who is found trying the case against St Paul a relative? And what can we usefully learn about the writing of Scripture and its message from all this?
