We have recently received information about this weekend course:

Details

In the Gospels Jesus announces the coming of God’s Kingdom. Rejecting the lure of power and prestige he promotes a vision of the Kingdom of God that, with its concern for the poor and socially excluded, looks just as upside down today as it did in first century Palestine. Some religious groups have tried, at great cost, to express this vision in all its political, social and economic implications. Drawing on the experience and insights of early Anabaptists/Mennonites and Quakers will help us get clearer about the radical nature of God’s Kingdom and the challenge of that vision today.

Tutor

Stuart Masters is currently following Woodbrooke’s Equipping for Ministry Programme. He is fascinated by the religious thought and prophetic social witness of the historic peace churches and the way in which these provide practical examples of the vision of radical discipleship found in the New Testament.
