The Beatitudes are perhaps the most important, subversive and revolutionary text in the Bible. They sum up Jesus’ teaching about what it means to live as a child of God’s kingdom.
Alan Falconer will guide us through these powerful statements with time for personal and shared reflection and prayer.
The day will include talks on The Beatitudes with time and space for personal prayer and meditation. We will join together for an ecumenical Agape lunch where we are nourished physically and spiritually.
Alan Falconer is a Church of Scotland minister, ecumenist, theologian and former Director of Faith & Order at the World Council of Churches. He was minister of the Cathedral Church of St. Machar, Aberdeen. In his teaching Alan draws on literature, music and art to help our understanding.
Composer Paul Mealor dedicated his anthem The Beatitudes to Alan Falconer in tribute to his preaching on this text.
