Belfast Cathedral invites the public, politicians, business people, students and anyone with an interest in public theology to a series of five lunchtime events focused on Brexit during Lent.
Wednesdays in Lent is a collaboration between the Cathedral and the Corrymeela Community. The programme is entitled ‘Theology in the City – Brexit, Borders and the Book of Ruth.’
Beginning on March 13, and continuing on March 20 and 27 and April 3 and 10, each session will run from 12 noon until 2.30pm and will include a short service of Holy Communion, lunch, and a talk which will be followed by discussion.
This series is facilitated by Glenn Jordan from Corrymeela.
Today's session is:
The book of Ruth instantly pitches us into famine and dislocation. It challenges our stereotypes and invites the reader to consider a new understanding of community based on character and relationship rather than blood and ethnicity. What new possibilities of national self-understanding are open to us in the Brexit debate, and what dangers might lurk there?
