Description:

Why are there so many translations of the Bible? Is it one book or many? Is it really God’s word, or man’s words about God? How can the OT be relevant in the 21st century when it was written in a completely different time and culture?

If you’ve ever had questions about the Bible and wished there were a place to discuss them more deeply and openly, but were afraid to ask, this is your chance!

We’re launching an online version of Unlocking the Bible, combining some online activities and questions with a group zoom discussion over 5 weekly sessions.

Perfect for anyone wanting to gain a deeper understanding of the Bible, its structure, story line, relationship between OT & NT, how it was written, and the differences in translations.

Available: Online / On-Site

On-Site: 5 weekly sessions lasting an hour and a half held at your Church/Organisation

The course programme is as follows:

  • Session 1 – Principles & Resources.
  • Session 2 – Caring for the Environment.
  • Session 3 – Medical Dilemmas.
  • Session 4 – Sex & Marriage.
  • Session 5 – Ethical Talk – and Listening.
The course will be facilitated by the Rev’d Dr Stephen Goundrey-Smith, who is an experienced parish priest, a scholar in Christian ethics and Associate Tutor in Christian Ethics at Cuddesdon Gloucester & Hereford.

Description:

We make decisions all the time – often under pressure because of time constraints, or the expectations of people around us. How can we be sure that the decisions that matter are good decisions? How can we be sure that these decisions are made well, that good outcomes are sought, and that the decision-making process honours God and respects those around us?

This five-week course explores ethics for the local church, and aims to equip individuals and churches to make good choices. It will outline some of the key ethical principles relating to making moral (good/bad) choices, and the riches that the Christian church brings to the task of doing ethics. It will then explore ethics in detail in three important areas of modern life

  1. Caring for the Environment
  2. Medical Dilemmas
  3. Sex and Marriage

Each session will help participants to think through and discuss the issues clearly but sensitively.

In the final session, there is an opportunity for participants to do a short small-group presentation on an ethical issue of their choice, continue the discussion on any of the areas already covered and to raise any other issues (which may then be addressed in follow-up sessions).
