When I survey … Christ’s cross and ours

A 5-session ecumenical COURSE for discussion groups – IDEAL FOR LENT or any time of year

Comprising course booklet, course audio and transcript

The death of Christ is a dominant and dramatic theme in the New Testament. So it’s not surprising that, over the centuries, the Cross has become the symbol of the Christian faith. But Christians do not honour a dead hero; we worship a Living Lord. According to the Bible, the death of Jesus is not the end of a track – it’s the gateway into life. His crucifixion gives rise to many key themes and you’ll explore some of these in this course including: the place of silence in our noisy world; despair and hope; a suffering world; the challenge of living as disciples when Christianity is no longer mainstream …

The course booklet, written by Revd Dr John Pridmore, includes questions aimed at provoking wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs a copy of the course audio, plus a course booklet for each member. In addition many groups find the transcript, which cross-references to the tracks on the recorded material, invaluable.

The participants on the course audio are John Bell, General Sir Richard Dannatt and Dr Christina Baxter. Methodist minister Colin Morris provides the thoughtful Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
