As the readers probably recall, just a few weeks ago we had our friends from the Northumbria Community for “their” week here at IBTS. One of the things they were preparing during that week was podcasts to be shared with brothers and sisters in the Baptist Union of Great Britain with meditations based on the perspective of the disciple Peter, leading from the Palm Sunday through the Holy Week leading into Easter. So if you click on this link, you will get a taste of the Northumbria Community and may also recognise various voices of IBTS folk! Blessed – truly blessed – Holy Week to all of you.
During the Northumbria Week at IBTS, a number of us, including all CATs, have been involved in thinking through the way how our worship relates to our spirituality, and in working creatively on arranging sacred spaces which would help us – and others – to see God and God’s work from a different perspective. Experiencing these sacred spaces was the focus of the last evening together with friends from Northumbria. Below are some impressions and thoughts of the CATs from the week:
