Getting our heads round the credit crunch at All Souls

by quaesitor

At All Souls last night, we had the latest in our occasional series of “Christians Facing Issues” – the topic this time was the Credit Crunch. It was a brilliant evening, having been devised by Tim Plyming, our workplace minister and BBC insider. He managed to get Hugh Pym and Justin Urquhart-Stewart from the Beeb to come and give us the inside info and economic background to it all – which was quite a coup. And then we had interviews with two people who had been personally affected by it all (one by redundancy, another through failed businesses). Pulling it all together, Hugh then gave 2 shorter talks (on Romans 1 & then Ephesians 1)bringing a biblical perspective to it all.

3 short films were shown during the course of the service and they are now available for all to see:

Then Jane Barrett took the camera around the city and did a couple of vox pops:

    I enjoyed your writing.
    The below is simple and maybe something to think about?

    Thanks!

    In the book called Matthew: Chapter 26 – Verse 28 is this sentence. “This is my blood of the covenant, which is freely given for the forgiveness of sins.”

    The history of all religion is a record of blood and fear and warfare and horror and rule. Men and Women are damned? Is formal religion a creation of all thngs dead?

    Peace, Love and Understanding
