Online Course Who Is Jesus? : Who do you say that I am?
with Vince Murray
Access this course through the main menu.
These four sessions will help participants to come to their own response to this question by exploring the ideas of some contemporary Christian thinkers, including Jose Pagola, Peter McVerry, Daniel O’Leary and Cynthia Bourgeault. These theologians, in their different ways, relate the life and teaching of Jesus to the spiritual journey of Christians today.
We also invite you to join us in praying for everyone affected by the virus. In particular, we hope you can join us (virtually) on Thursdays, 9.00-9.30pm for prayer. Let us know you are with us in spirit by getting in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or 071-966-4101 and let us know any prayer needs. If you would like to send a photo of your candle or prayer space please do so by email or on our Facebook or Twitter accounts.
Blessings to all. The Galilee Team
