August 28 - August 29

International conversations with the Wild Goose Resource Group #2: on Scripture

Wednesday 28th – Thursday 29th August 2019

 

The Bible …

… open or closed?
… public or private?
… experience or theory?
… dynamic or dead?

Ever since its inception, the Wild Goose Resource Group has been concerned to let the Bible come alive in the experience of believers and those who seek to believe.

Rather than see the Bible as a book to be read, they regard it as a living word to be shared, and enable this through a range of workshops, reflective practices and sung texts.

Some of their accrued insights from over thirty years working with ministers and lay people throughout Britain and overseas will be open to all at this conferences, when participants from the UK will be joined by pastors and lay people from the Church of Denmark. This follows a very successful conference in 2017, when similarly, a group of Danes came to Glasgow – to explore matters pertaining to church music, scripture particularly in the practice of baptism.

You are warmly invited to be part of this unique event. Full Programme & Timings will be added soon.

The Conference will be led by John Bell, Jo Love and Graham Maule of the Wild Goose Resource Group; in consultation with Tine Illum and Søren Andresen, liturgical workers and activists from the Danish Lutheran Church.

Living With The Bible will be held in The Ground, the event space of the Iona Community’s Glasgow Base at 21 Carlton Court, Glasgow G5 9JP (a 5 minute walk from Central Station; and a 2 minute walk from Bridge Street Underground).

Participants can come for one or both days. Lunch will be provided on both.

 

This Conference is part of the 2019-20 weeWONDERBOX programme, organised by the Iona Community and the Wild Goose Resource Group. See the weeWONDERBOX 2019-20 listings page for more information about these.
