Several members weren’t going to be able to attend the date we chose for April 8, so the meeting was cancelled.
We considered “growth” when we met in February.
There were fifteen folk present (including two ‘first-timers’) on Sunday 7th January to share reflections on “birth”. As usual these were varied and thought-provoking.
As one of the opening events of the 2017 Scottish Interfaith Week, we gathered on November 12th and shared a number of creative items including art, music and storytelling.
In October we reflected on change.
Our September meeting was attended by nine people, who all shared something that defined their faith. Some very personal reflections were among a variety of contributions – including a dramatic monologue!
There were only seven folk present at our July gathering, when the theme was charity.
Our June meeting theme was “Hope.” This was to tie in with the Jo Cox Foundation get together.
We shared thoughts about “wings” when we met in April.
Roots was the theme for our March gathering – and as usual there was a wide variation in contributions from those present.
Our first meeting of 2017 was held on Sunday January 15th, and we focused our minds on the theme of “Home”. Some of the reflections shared were on the subject of homelessness.
