Better Together ?

An ecumenical course for discussion groups in five sessions  –  ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific

comprising course booklet, audio and transcript

In addition to relationships within the family and church, this thought-provoking 5-session course considers the way we relate to strangers, mend broken relationships and relate to God.

5 sessions:
1. Family Relationships
2. Church Relationships
3. Relating to Strangers
4. Broken Relationships
5. Our Relationship with God

Christianity is not just a private matter. Yes, it is about our own interior life and our personal relationship with God – but it is much, much more. It is concerned with how we treat and relate to one another both inside and outside the church; it is about how we function as families and societies; it is about how broken relationships can be mended and what to do when they can’t.

These are the areas of life that Better Together? deals with – and it looks frankly at how the Christian perspective may differ from that of society at large.

The participants on the course audio are John Bell, Nicky Gumbel and Jane Williams. Abbot Timothy provides the thoughtful Closing Reflection at the end of each session.

The course booklet, written by Canon John Young and Revd David Gamble includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs 1 copy of the course audio, and ideally a personal copy of the course booklet for each member. In addition many groups find the transcript, which sets out the words as spoken on the recorded material, invaluable.
