Tuesday 16th May, 7.30pm – 9pm

Dr Helen Reid leads the session on Children in the Bible : A Fresh Approach by Dr Anne Richards.

What does God think about children? What does this tell us about how we should view and treat children today? In re-examining what the Bible says about children, mission theologian Anne Richards argues that God finds children worthy of call, commission, blessing, healing and salvation. She argues that children are not only deeply woven into God’s purposes but are also makers of God’s story, ‘providers to us of a language through which God’s will for the creation is revealed.’ Interweaving analysis of the Biblical material with stories about contemporary children and childhood, Anne Richards also touches on issues of infertility, consumerism, and neglect.
