We are going to hold a Bible Study on Saturday 20th June 15:00-16:30, led by Revd Dr Janet E Tollington. Everyone is welcome to join on-line.
The study focus will be the Book of Ruth. Last year, Janet led us in a fascinating and thought-provoking study day on the Babylonian Exile and how this theme impacts on today’s world.
‘One of Ruth’s main themes is kindness and how God’s love can be appreciated through human acts of kindness. As we explore the book we will discover how kindness is often shown by unexpected people in unexpected ways; and that there is often a lot more going on in what appears to be a simple story.
‘Anyone is welcome to participate either simply by listening, or by joining in the discussion of the text. No expertise is required; all you need is a Bible and an enquiring mind.’
Revd Dr Janet E Tollington retired from Westminster College, Cambridge, 4 years ago, having taught Old Testament there for many years. She still does some teaching for the University of Cambridge and teaches and preaches around the country for the URC and ecumenically. She loves working with all kinds of people and helping them discover more about God, our world and themselves as they engage more deeply with biblical texts.
