14th February 2020, 6:30 pm to 16th February 2020, 4:00 pm£235
An opportunity for reflection, conversation and prayer based on some of the themes contained in David’s book of the same title. What is a mature relationship with God? What in that is God’s part and what is our part? Can we expect too much of God and turn him into a magician or too little and make faith not much more than a human enterprise? We will pick up issues like prayer and providence, pain and suffering and think through what makes for a mature church as well personal faith.
