Called 'Faith and Faithfulness in Life and Work...
Faith and Faithfulness in Life and Work - CHRISM Conference and AGMCarrs Lane URC, Birmingham, Saturday, 14 September. Guest speaker: The Revd Teresa Morgan. Faith is traditionally divided into 'the faith we believe in' (a body of doctrine) or 'the faith by which we believe' (in our hearts and minds). But in the world of the New Testament, pistis or fides, which we translate ‘faith’, is above all a relationship which creates a community. We shall reflect on the distinctive shape of the communities which arecreated by Christian faith. In the morning, we shall look at some New Testament communities;in the afternoon, we shall reflect on the communities we create through faith today, in our livesand work. Teresa will present some ideas based on a forthcoming book, offering some new ways of thinking about faith which I hope are especially relevant to contemporary secular ministry.The day begins at 11.00 (tea and coffee on arrival from 10.30) and will finish at 17.00. A buffetlunch is provided, with mid-afternoon refreshments. Carrs Lane URC is located in the heart of Birmingham, a 10 minute walk from both New Street and Moor Street rail stations. Chrism site.
