Faith and Society Update - October 2019

Welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.

As October is Black history month we have compiled a selection of resources, events and articles to help Baptists to reflect and mark this month.  This includes the new edition of Wonderful Youth - five sessions for young people aged 13-16 to explore the theme of ‘No Outsiders’ using culturally diverse images, exercises and activities.  This resource has been developed by members of two multicultural British Baptist churches.  We are also looking forward to our 8th annual Sam Sharpe lecture being given by Professor Verene Shepherd this month - see below for booking.

Freedom of Religion or Belief was a key theme at the 2019 Council of the European Baptist Federation (EBF), last week, which also highlighted ‘impulses of hope’ across the region.  See the Baptist Times article for a report of the EBF Council held in Glasgow.

This Update also includes a number of seasonal resources which we hope will be useful to your church.
