Caloundra (Qld) EXPLORERS GATHERING
Sunday 18th August at 5pm
“CONVINCING WORDS AND CONVERSATION”
Our Sunday Gathering, 5pm -7pm, on 18th August, will be led by Caloundra Explorers
in Conversations championing ‘the power of the written word’ in its ability to ignite a life changing ‘conviction’ within our Christian spiritual journey.
You are invited to join in this special and intimate opportunity to be part of a ‘Conversation’ with other Explorers and our Regional Friends.
We have put a proposition to five of our Explorers and Friends:
“ Have you ever read just a few paragraphs in a book or blog and realised that you had been struck by an absolute awesome ‘insight’ or ‘truth’, in fact, a “conviction’” that had you saying almost out aloud “that is right!” YES!”
“ Will you share these excerpts with us?”.
The intimacy and security of our Explorers fellowship allows us to fully explore these five situations. Each of our five Explorers will present their excerpt to us, with a personal comment supporting that ‘insight’… ie “the convincing words” that are so important to them.
We can then discuss, within our Gathering, whether that ‘conviction shared’ has resonance with others as we look through that ‘writing’ and analyse, discuss, and contemplate why it elicited such an enthusiastic YES! from that Explorer.
When our guests’ list of authors includes Dominic Crossan and Richard Rohr, you can see that we are in for a really fascinating evening together.
WHEN: Sunday Evening 18th August at 5pm thru to approx 7-15pm.
WHERE: Caloundra Uniting Church HALL at 56 Queen Street Caloundra
OTHER INFO: The Gathering includes a byo light finger food meal as well as a full opportunity to discuss the issues around your table with friends-old and new!
