Faith In The Questions
Counting The Clouds a new one act play by Nigel Forde
Followed by conversation with leading scientists
When: Friday January 19th at 7.30pm
Where? Heslington Church, Field Lane, York, YO10 5EE
A respected scientist and a christian, Job’s work is wrestling with the unpredictable as well as predictable structure of the universe. Is God really in control? And when his personal world is shaken to the core, how can he re-assemble the pieces of the puzzle – professionally and spiritually?
Compared with the centuries long hand-in-hand relationship between religious faith and scientific enquiry, recent debate has, for many people, become mistrustful and sharply adversarial. Which side is God on? Or is this the wrong question to ask?
One of any number of good and provocative questions thrown out by Faith in the Questions, a combination of theatre and scientific discussion.
Come and raise your questions.
The scientists for the event are:
Sue Hartley (UoY, Ecology)
Steve Smye(Medical Research)
Tom Jackson (Computer science)
Walking on Water, Saturday 13th January
A New Wine Event at The Belfrey. 10.00am - 4.00pm
From the beginning, Jesus trained his disciples to join him in the signs, wonders and miracles that he performed. Many Christians long to experience the fullness of life, but find that their spiritual lives are lacking in purpose or depth. This day has been designed to give you a taste of New Wine’s ministry of worship, teaching and prayer, and to help you take steps forward into the adventure of following Jesus.
