Tomorrow morning (11am) we will be crossing borders with Jesus in John 4... There he crosses gender, race and religion to engage with a Samaritan woman by a well... it is politically and religiously subversive stuff... but perhaps there is more... is there a border to the soul of our being that Jesus can cross too. We will look at the relentlessness or consumerism and how it messes with our desires. We will find help from Rowan Williams and actor Andrew Garfield... there will be some slam poetry and original rhymes too. We will also be looking, praying and responding to the East African famine. Worship with the youthful exuberance of Michael Dolaghan and his band!
In the evening (7pm) we are thrilled to have some guests from Selma, Alabama with us. We will be looking at the movie Selma, asking how it was there in 1965 when Dr Martin Luther King came to town. We will then be finding out how an African American Baptists Church involved in those days of 1965 and a white Presbyterian Church are crossing the divides in reconciliation. This is part 3 in our Lenten Series on Rowan Williams book Being Disciples - this week's chapter is appropriately on forgiveness!
