Our home group meetings always have a Bible reading, prayers and reflection, sometimes also music. We follow a particular theme over a number of weeks. So far we have studied God’s Kingdom, the Bible and the Beatitudes from the York Pilgrims’ Course series. We then moved on to Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si. We were challenged by the questions this raised about human beings’ relationship to creation and the environment, climate change, and the implications for our lives today. Advent took us on to a study of the prophet Isaiah using material from a book called Light to the Nations by John Cox. We are about to conclude this, and then will move on in our March meetings to Lent reflections on a prayer by St Teresa of Avila ‘No Body but Yours’. Our home groups are led by Liz White and James Westgate.
