The Mystery of Everything is a new and original Lent course by Hilary Brand, which takes the multi-award winning film about Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, as its starting point. The course explores ways in which the mysteries of the universe and of everyday life — and the acceptance that we have more questions than answers — can reinvigorate our faith and spiritual journey. The course is based around five weekly group sessions entitled:
The experience of wonder
The enigma of weakness
The complexity of relationships
The encounter with frailty
The hope beyond brokenness
Each session includes an extract from the film, group discussion questions and a meditation. There are also short introductory and follow up chapters for individual reading each week, and a chapter of Bible passages for further daily reading.

Tuesday at 7.30pm at At Alex Laing's (20 Langden Close) — 23rd January, 6th, 20th February, 6th & 20th March.
