Christians aim to live their lives according to God’s word found in Scripture – but we don’t always find it easy to get to grips with it or understand the various types of writings that are found within its pages.
Christians also aim to live as faithful followers of Jesus and to serve him in contemporary culture – but here too we face the challenges of trying to live that out in a complex society which is impacted by both secularisation and pluralism.
We know things are changing, but we’re not always sure how to respond.
This day conference (along with ones in Aberdeen and Edinburgh) aims to offer help and insight to Christians, both those who want to be better equipped to read God’s word and who want help in understanding how best to follow Him in today’s world.
Marion Carson will lead us through the often challenging pages of the New Testament, while David Miller will look at the place of Christianity in a secular/plural word, Brodie McGregor will examine moral choices in our consumer culture, and Julie Green will look at the ways in which voices in contemporary culture might speak to our Christian faith.
