Welcome to e-bulletin for 6th May

As well as the anticipated further relaxation of restrictions on 17th May, there is much to look forward to this month – including, we hope, some warmer weather! Ascension Day falls on 13th; Pentecost on 23rd, culminating in Trinity Sunday on 30th May. After that, we return to ‘Ordinary Time’, which feels rather ironic this year.

Faith in a Conflicted World

‘Faith in a Conflicted World’: a 5-part film series from Archbishop Justin Welby. Recommended by Eunice Norwood, who says: “I am enjoying every minute of it. Archbishop Justin is so expressive and sincere.”
From the introduction to the series:
We don't have to navigate a divided and messy world alone. Along with others, God invites us to take part in his story. Be part of this growing community of people (‘Difference’, part of the Reconciling Leaders Network) who long to see their faith have an impact.
Difference is committed to mobilising a generation to live out their calling as peacemakers and reconcilers, for a just and flourishing society.
Sign up to receive the new film series and regular inspiration for being curious, being present and reimagining in your everyday life, as well as the latest news about what Difference is up to and how you can get involved.
