meeting Monday 11th June

On monday 11th June the Ipswich Sea of faith group will meet in Sudbury at 7.30 pm.
Richard Titford is going to speak to us on Julian of Norwich.

Our last meeting, in May, was devoted to a discussion, led by Jean Wardrop, of Alain de Botton's  book "Religion for Atheists". It was a good open discussion, the book is very readable,  and it was felt to be optimistic though raised some questions about the importance of religious education in schools, if people are to have the choice of selecting "the good bits"
Our July meeting is to be a shared meal with our own choice of music that inspires us.
