Peter Green: March 2019
This Saturday, March 23rd, from 2pm, the Good Faith Book Club will meet in our refurbished Welcome Space to discuss Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby's book on Reimagining Britain.
The book cover said, "In a time of political turbulence, and as the Welfare State totters under the strain in a country that has changed dramatically since 1945...Welby sets out to identify the values that will enable us to reimagine, and to enact, a more hopeful future...When many are immobilised by political turmoil, (a good week to say this!), this book builds on our past to offer hope for the future, identifying practical ways to achieve a more equitable society."
To find out what we made of it, come and listen or join in this Saturday. For a summary of all our previous discussions, click here.
