Wednesday 13 January - ONLINE CRAFT SESSION

13.00

With the Revd Dr Jenny Morgans - join here.

Part of @KingsCollegeLon Wellbeing Month

Wednesday 27 January - SCRIPTURAL REASONING

Scriptural Reasoning involves Chaplains from different traditions meeting to read passages from their respective sacred texts, usually on a particular theme. They then discuss together the content of those texts and ways in which those texts shape their engagement with contemporary issues. The aim is not to find agreement, but rather to grow in understanding of one another's traditions and explore the texts and different possible interpretations. 

Theme: REST

16.00 

Exploring the theme of Rest by reading from and reflecting on sacred texts from the Islamic, Christian and Jewish faiths.

Join the chaplaincy team as we share in our faith traditions and explore questions like: During lockdown, has your definition of 'rest' changed? Do you value rest as a spiritual practice? How is rest and sleep practiced in your life with importance and without shame?

Join the session here (Microsoft Teams).

ROSARY GROUP

17.00

Starts Wednesday 13 January 2021.

Are you interested in joining a “school of prayer”? Are you seeking to grow in loving union with Jesus? If so, the Rosary group is for you! Each week we will pray the Rosary together, meditating on the mysteries of Christ’s life aided by the prayers and example of His Blessed Mother Mary.

The group meets on Microsoft Teams and is led by our Catholic Chaplains Fr Toby and Laurence. To sign-up, please email Laurence.

Do not worry if you have never prayed the Rosary before or have forgotten how to do so-the purpose of a school is to help you to learn.

Please note, this group is open to current KCL members only.

BIBLE STUDY GROUP - Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life

18.00, every Wednesday for 10 weeks

Starting Wednesday 27 January 2021

With Laurence Jasper and Fr Toby Lees

Email Laurence if you'd like to express an interest, or find out more.

Most of us know about Jesus. But how well do we actually know him? Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life is a ten-week virtual Bible study course which explores the entire life of Jesus as presented in the four Gospels and in the light of Catholic teaching. It will look at who Jesus is, what he is really like, what he taught and what he did for our salvation. Its aim is to help you to encounter Christ, to know and to love him more intimately and deeply, and to place him at the centre of your life.

Please note, this course is for current KCL students only and the limited number of places are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.  

BOOK CLUB - 'A long, long way' by Greg Garrett

15.00

Starting Wednesday 3 February 2021

Book: A Long, Long Way: Hollywood's Unfinished Journey from Racism to Reconciliation by Greg Garrett

In this remarkably poignant, deeply relevant book, Garrett handles his subject-the centurylong tortured history of race in American motion pictures, from Birth of a Nation to Get Out --with an unusual degree of grace and sensitivity, yet also with probing scholarly rigor. He shies away from the easy answers, offering in their place an account that is at once refreshingly honest, multi-dimensional, and full of nuance.’ Noah Isenberg, author of We'll Always Have Casablanca: The Life, Legend, and Afterlife of Hollywood's Most Beloved Movie.

Greg Garrett is the author of four acclaimed novels, two books of memoir, and twenty nonfiction works on faith, politics, race, culture, and narrative, and is, according to BBC Radio, one of America's essential voices on religion and culture. An award-winning Professor of English at Baylor University, Greg also serves as Theologian in Residence at the American Cathedral in Paris, and is an elected member of the Texas Institute of Letters. He lives in Austin with his wife Jeanie and their family.

The Book Club will be led by the Revd Tim Ditchfield FKC, College Chaplain. Greg will be joining the group for a Q&A later in the semester.

All are welcome – email Tim for more info and to receive the Teams invite to join the group.
