How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign, strange, pagan land? (Ps 137 v 4)
Dunblane High School
Saturday 26th August,
10.00am – 4.15pm
Many of us can feel that, like the people of Israel in exile, we are living in a ‘strange land’ which is very different to what we once knew. As Christians and as a Church how do we communicate with the people around us and respond to the way society is moving?
The event will begin with an opening session from 10.00 – 11.30. We are delighted that Stuart Weir, National Director of CARE (Christian Action, Research & Education) for Scotland will be the main speaker and he will help us reflect on what the Bible has to say on the theme both for individuals and for the Church. This session will also include praise & worship and other input. Following this there will be a series of workshops from 11.40 – 12.40 and which will be repeated from 1.45 – 2.45.
Then we will have the closing Celebration from 3.15 – 4.15. There will again be a display of books and other resources available for sale. There will also be a display by a number of Christian agencies giving information on their work in different parts of the world and in Scotland. We are again meeting in Dunblane High School, with bright modern, spacious facilities mostly on one level and with a lift to the upper floor.
