Theology as Story: Believing in the Truth of People

In realms of religion, the word “belief” is often used. What do you believe? Do you agree with this belief? Or that belief? Do you think what
you believe is true? This seminar will move the focus of belief away from what we believe to who we believe. Focusing on a central question of “tell us a time when you were believed” we will uncover the power of belief when it’s enacted as a reciprocal and life-giving gesture, especially when it is least expected.

For: Storytellers, artists, poets, writers and those who lead congregations in ministry and mission.

Wine and nibbles will be available from 6.30pm.
