Our next gathering will build on the excellent discussion we had last month focused on the paper “How my thinking has changed” by Sir Lloyd Geering. This paper resonated with the life experiences of many, so we decided to make our April session one that looks at our individual experiences of changing our thinking. Participants are invited to prepare for this session by writing a few words about how their own mind has shifted over the years:
What were your basic religious values when you were very young, a youth and now?
What were the influences that caused you to have these thoughts?
Did you read a special book, speak or listen to someone influential, or just evolved your thinking over time?
When we move into small groups, this will give us some good discussion starters for some robust conversations.
Date: Wednesday 26th April
We meet at Merthyr Road Uniting Church, 52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm.
10 am for morning tea (a few contributions to this will be welcome)
10:30 we begin our exploring of the topic.
A donation of $5 towards costs is appreciated.

Thanks Robert. Good to have you in the group.
Would it be helpful to set a few guidelines for this event so personal boundaries aren’t impacted? We don’t understand each other very well.
In the future I see interpersonal relationships becoming better understood. Understanding ourself and others better will help us ‘love’ the unlovely and the different.
Yes thanks for that reminder Bev. We will make it clear at the beginning of our discussions.
