Invitation to join Theological Reading Group
Revd Canon John Nightingale is extending an open invitation to all, whether ordained or lay, to join the Theological Reading Group, which begins a new series of online meetings on Thursday 14 January 2021.
The book to be studied is ‘Engaging the Powers: Discernment and Resistance in a World of Domination’ by Walter Wink.
To quote Goodreads, ‘Wink explores the problem of evil today and how it relates to the New Testament concept of Principalities and Powers. He asks the question “How can we oppose evil without creating new evils and being made evil ourselves?” The book was the winner of the Pax Christi Award, the Academy of Parish Clergy Book of the Year, and the Midwest Book Achievement Award for Best Religious Book.’
When purchasing a copy of ‘Engaging the Powers,’ John Nightingale reminds readers that, though Amazon is often the cheapest and easiest buying option, it is by objective criteria much the least ethical of booksellers (Link HERE).
The study group meetings will be held via Zoom and will last just over one hour on each occasion. The five meetings will take place at 1.30pm on Thursdays 14 and 28 January, 11 and 25 February, and 11 March.
Those interested in joining the Theological Reading Group are invited to contact Revd John Nightingale at THIS ADDRESS. John will issue the Zoom link and study material.
