St Paul's Alternative Advent - #4 - Unmuted Word by Sarah Lasoye

The fourth in a series of new poetry for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. For each Sunday from Advent 2017 to Epiphany 2018, six exciting young poetic voices and one emerging digital artist reimagine the story of Christmas. Taking the Biblical text as a starting point, they each retell a story that is both personal and universal, layering it with meaning and peppering it with insight. They bring to life the humans behind a familiar narrative, and enable us to see them, and hopefully ourselves, in a new way.

The Grace of Waiting: Margaret Whipp

Advent is the season of waiting and contemplation, when we prepare for the joyful coming of Christ at Christmas. But waiting is not always chosen or joyful, and can bring times of great spiritual testing – through illness, old age, or the struggles and frustrations of everyday life. Margaret Whipp will explore the challenges of life’s waiting times and the skills they demand, drawing on vivid metaphors of wine-making, wilderness, winter and the womb, and how the paradoxical grace of patience can point to the kindness of the God who wait for us. 

Forgiveness: A Journey to Freedom?

Forgiveness is news. When someone forgives terrible harm done to them, from the victims of terrorism to the violently bereaved, the story is always news and often the person is treated as a moral hero. But does it take a special person to forgive and forget, or can we all learn to do it? And why is forgiveness central to Jesus’ teaching? Lucy Winkett, priest and theologian, and Marian Partington, whose sister was killed by Fred and Rose West, will explore the reality of the darkness in others and ourselves, and the radical path of forgiveness.  

Black Sheep and Prodigals - Dave Tomlinson

Do you feel more at home on the edges of faith than at the centre? Christian life has often been associated with conformity and a culture where people don’t feel able to ask questions. But Dave Tomlinson thinks our spiritual communities can be ‘laboratories of the Spirit’ where we explore issues of faith and spirit with openness, imagination and creativity. Can they be places where doubts and questions are an essential part of faith, and divine revelation can be found in art, science and the natural world as well as religious tradition?
