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 1.05pm until 1.50pm. You may wish to join us for Holy Communion from 12 noon until 12.30pm. Refreshments for the Wednesdays in Lent talks will be available from 12.30pm, or bring your own lunch!
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?
