fx Gathering Sept 23 – Wayfinders: Guided by Scripture, navigating the liminal

26 September 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 27 September 2023 @ 12:30 PM UTC+0

£20

Overview:

In liminal spaces, we’re often looking for certainty and clear direction. The psalmist tells us that our ‘holy book’ is “a lamp for my feet, a light on my path” (Psalm 119:105). This gathering will be a safe space to explore how the Bible helps us to navigate through the sea of questions and doubts we might have, and to discover how Scripture might reveal wayfinders for the journey.

We’ll be joined by John Drane and Olive Fleming Drane who, with a mix of captivating stories, cutting-edge academic research, and their own personal wisdom, will take us on a deep dive into the origins of the Bible. Together we’ll unpack how this ancient text carries increased relevance in modern times and discover fresh perspectives on how we can creatively apply it to our own missional contexts.
