Daily Reflections for the Summer

We are currently gathering a superb selection of 'reflections from lockdown' to inspire and challenge us over the summer weeks. These reflections are mostly in the style of 'The Great 50 Days' and are being written by a variety of people from around our region. We expect to begin sending these out at the end of this month. Anyone who would like to receive these and who is not already on the Easter 2020 Great 50 Days distribution list can register to receive the emails here or can join in via the Learning Network social media accounts.

Opportunity to Share in Lectio Divina

In recent weeks the weekly Prayer Sheet has included a section on lectio divina. This is a method of reflecting and praying with scripture which dates back to the early church and particularly monastic traditions, but may not have been so familiar to us in Methodism in recent years. For those who would like to experience lectio divina in a group setting there are zoom sessions coming up where we will reflect on a bible passage together using the lectio divina approach. (Please note, these are not a 'series'. The second session will be a different scripture passage, participants are welcome to attend either or both sessions.)

· Friday 24th July @ 2pm

· Wednesday 19th August @ 7pm

Please email lnnortheast@methodistchurch.org.uk to book a place and receive the zoom link.
