A 5-session ecumenical COURSE for discussion groups; ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific
Written by Canon John Young and comprising course booklet, course audio and transcript
'To all who received him ... he gave power to become children of God.' (John 1.12.)
This raises big questions. Aren't we all children of God anyway? Just how can we receive Christ? And what does it mean to have 'a relationship with God'?
In a course crammed with discussable questions, John Young teases out from the New Testament at least three different ways in which we receive Christ. John's course booklet is supplemented by four leading Christians, from a variety of backgrounds, on the course audio. Together they demonstrate that St John's theology in his magisterial Gospel has very practical implications for our day-to-day lives.
Session 1: Receiving Christ: as children of God
Session 2: Receiving Christ: in the stranger and the needy
Session 3: Receiving Christ: in Holy Communion
Session 4: Receiving Christ: through prayer and fellowship
Session 5: 'Christ in you, the hope of glory' (Colossians 1.27)
The participants on the course audio are:
The Rt Revd Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds
Revd Dr Ken Howcroft, former President of Methodist Conference
Theodora Hawksley, RC Theologian
