Online book club led by Revd Rachel Hirst. Reading ‘Christ in the Wilderness’ by Stephen Cottrell (who is now our Archbishop). Starting Tuesday 23rd Feb. 2021 on Tuesday Evenings, from 7.30pm to 9pm, for 5 weeks.
This book uses 5 of Stanley Spencer’s paintings of Jesus in the desert for 40 days. The introduction says ‘To look at these paintings is itself an invitation to enter the desert through the doorway of your imagination. We need to approach these pictures, and the reading of the book, with a certain openness: we need to allow ourselves to be surprised and disturbed.’ If this intrigues you, then come and join in the discussion.
