Sophia – 7 June 2020

Sophia – 7 June 2020

Sophia is on Sunday 7th June at 6pm on zoom.
Topic is Living in a World of War: The Intersection of Popular and Christian Ethics

The goal is to discuss the tension Christians encounter as they decide how to live in a world where war is a day-to-day reality.  We will examine some of the big questions , such as, “Is there any such thing as a just war?”

Led by Greg Rublee, M.S. Defense and Strategic Studies and former U.S. Intelligence Officer

The service will be based around an ethical issue including the exploration of spiritual and faith responses.  Following a time of gathered prayer, an ethical issue is introduced, information shared and then discussion takes place in table groups using some questions as a guide.  The time together will end with the sharing of communion and prayer.

The name ‘Sophia’ is taken from the First Testament and speaks of the Wisdom literature, the Holy Spirit, and a sense of what is just – all of which nurture the spiritual faith life.

This is an intergenerational service suitable for young adults although some ethical issues might not be as appropriate as others for some young people – warnings will be provided if that’s the case.
