There was an excellent turnout for the Bishop of Connor’s final seminar in his Lent Series, held in St Patrick’s Parish Hall, Jordanstown, on April 3.
His topic this year was Stewards of Creation, and the large numbers in attendance, along with some of the questions raised during the course of the seminars, indicate that this is an issue close to many hearts.
The earlier seminars took place in Bushmills on March 21 and Lisburn Cathedral on March 29. At each of them, Bishop Alan explained that while he was no scientist, God’s people have a duty to look after God’s creation.
In his talk he discussed the church’s theology in terms of God’s creation, what is our responsibility as children of God, and looked at the issues of concern and how people can make a difference.
There was an opportunity for chat and fellowship during a refreshment break midway through each seminar, and Bishop Alan thanked each parish for their hospitality.
