We were created to be creative. The gifts we have are there to be used, but so many of us see our creative and artistic dreams crushed or even cursed by faulty messages from within and without the church. This retreat is for anyone who wants to meet the creator through the creative, but it's particularly for people who have felt their creative or artistic callings and dreams got lost somewhere along the way. Andy Kind is a comedian, preacher and writer, who has made people laugh around the world for the last 15 years. He loves seeing people's minds change about who they were born to be, by using the creative to point to the Creator. He also loves seeing people bring him whiskey and meat.

Being the Church in Three Dimensions - led by Dr Ian Paul Advent Quiet Day
Thu 28 Nov 09:30 - 16:00
Diocesan House of Retreat, The Street, CM3 1HA
Link for more

Although we live in a particular social context, theologically we have (since Pentecost) lived 'between the ages', living in the light of Jesus' ascension and awaiting his return. The Book of Revelation challenges us to live in this time with discipline, facing suffering, but shape by the worship of God as we anticipate that the best is yet to be. Dr Ian Paul studied maths and worked in business before training for ordination in Nottingham and completing a PhD on the metaphorical language of the Book of Revelation. After ten years in parish ministry, and another ten in theological education, he now works freelance teaching, writing and speaking. He is a member of the General Synod and the Archbishops' Council, and is Adjunct Professor in New Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary.
