The Echo Of God
One of the desert fathers once said 'Joy is the echo of God's life in us.' This six-week course aims to celebrate the joy of knowing that everything we do - even the problems and trials we face - is transformed by our awareness that God loves us and comes to us. Each week from Advent to Epiphany the course looks at a passage of Scripture where we see joy or delight expressed: the joy of Creation, the psalms, the triumph of joy over adversity, the joy of Mary, the birth of Christ and the love of God. To explore the Scripture readings, David Adam employs the ancient tradition of Lectio Divina. The purpose is not to study the Scriptures but to be still and open enough to hear the echo of God in our lives.
