A Quaker Day of Healing
CLITHEROE QUAKER MEETING HOUSE IS PARTICIAPING IN A NATIONAL DAY OF HEALING
ON SATURDAY 2nd MARCH 2019
This is a continuous but focused Meeting for Worship for Healing from 11:00am – 3:00pm
Clitheroe Friends would like to invite you to take part in the day or perhaps have the names of any people or situations that are of concern to you mentioned during our Day of Distant Healing
Visitors are welcome to stay for as long or as short a period of time as they wish and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
It is hoped to create a unified spiritual act of connectedness with gathered friends from all over the country in their groups, all focused on the same theme, in an act of distant healing of people and concerns, an act of spiritual energy immeasurably strengthened by our corporate prayers and ‘holding in the Light’.
The focus of healing might encompass a wide range of concerns, including:
All life on our planet and the environment
Societies and conflicts throughout the world
Our town and city communities
Our Quaker communities
Family and Friends
And not forgetting ourselves
The spiritual energy of the Meeting can be experienced much more powerfully when gathered as a group than as individuals. To do this at a national level and on the same day would be a truly powerful statement of spiritual intent and practice.
All are most welcome but should participation on the day not be possible, names of people or concerns, can be sent in confidence to Bev Rayner.
Also if you would like any further information do please contact Bev on:
01200 426898 or 07928 107306 or email@example.com
Rawtenstall Faith Lecture
23rd. March 2019
From 11:00am until 3:15pm
Alastair McIntosh: ‘Towards Third Millennium Christianity: Activism, Nonviolence and the Mystical Imperative’.
If Christianity still matters, then why? Alastair McIntosh will argue that Jesus was an activist on a cosmic scale. He understood non-violence as the power of love. Religion of the first and second millennia has, for the most part, compromised that vision. Third Millennium Christianity is a refreshed opening of the way, a way of liberation. It seeks, in co-operation with other faiths, to walk the mystical path and bring fresh hope into the world.
