Our Virtual Meeting
A gathering place for our Meeting during the
Covid-19 waiting time.
This page has been created as a place where we can post suggestions each week for readings we can share and think about during our "Meetings in Spirit" at home or in our Zoom Meeting online for those who choose not to attend Meeting for Worship in person.
If you are inspired to write something for this page to be shared with the wider community, you can email the Clerks or leave a message on our Contact page here in the website and we will post these after each Sunday "Meeting".
When this page is updated for the following week the previous week's readings and follow-on thoughts will be moved to the new "Virtual Meeting Archive" page found under the "Archive" tab above. This will keep those thoughts together but allow this page to remain uncluttered.
The reading for this week: 22nd November
From Barbara Miller
To apply the term ‘God’ (in the Christian sense) is to say that we perceive intuitively a connection between the marvels of the natural world, the moral law, the life of Jesus, the depths of the human personality, our intimations about time, death and eternity, our experience of human forgiveness and love, and the finest insights of the Christian tradition.
To deny the existence of ‘God’ is to say that we cannot (yet) see such connections. But even the word ‘God’ is not an essential tool for grasping them.
John Lampen, 1985
