Come Home For Christmas
The Catholic Church has a campaign called Come Home For Christmas to encourage people to go back to church at Christmas. It is a bit like ‘Back to Church Sunday’, but the name is different. There is a downloads page where you can get resources such as ‘A Leaflet For The lapsed’.
You might remember that the other week I mentioned ‘Sorted Magazine’, the UK’s first Christian magazine for men. Well, there is now a website and also a Facebook group. I have not seen the magazine yet so I am thin on particulars.
Just This Day
The Just This Day campaign encourages places of worship to open their doors so that people can be quiet on November 28th. The main event in the UK will be at St Martin’s in the Fields where ‘a 3 minute stillness will take place on the hour’.
The rest of the time there will be an unholy racket. Sorry.
Affirming Liberalism is ‘a new network for all Christians, ordained and lay, Affirming Anglican Liberal Christians and Christianity, in the Oxford Diocese and beyond’. Sounds pretty inclusive. All we need now is an ‘Affirming Evangelicalism’ and we’ll have the set. (Thanks to Richard for this.)
The Sophia Network is a network for women in youth work. I wish it every success as the people behind it are good people. I note that the ‘who we are‘ page mentions that Sharon Prior (who interviewed me when I went to Biblical college) ‘loves walking on the beach and eating Chinese food’. Ah, multitasking. (Thanks to Sarah for this.)
