September 2022

Kia ora and greetings,

We dedicated the month of August to the women in the Church, and we were very blessed to have had two wonderful presentations on Mary of Nazareth—Her Sacred Life & Her Human Life.
If you were unable to participate in the session with Prof Thomas O’Loughlin and Kieran Fenn fms, you might like to listen to the recordings of their input which is available on our website.

Following up on the Marian theme, my recent interview on Muffin Talk was with Dr Christopher Longhurst who gave fascinating insights into the famous Pietà by Michelangelo. The interview is also available on YouTube.

After many weeks of rain in Auckland, I have been thinking of Living Water, and I am happy to announce that we will have two presentations on this topic in the month of September.
We will look at Living Water from the perspective of the Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible and from the perspective of the New Testament.

If you are on Social Media, follow us on  YouTube and Facebook. Contact us here for further information or feedback.


The programmes coming up are:

Living Waters – in Judaism with Dr Leonard Bloksberg.
Monday, 19 September, 7-8.30pm.

Living Waters – in Christianity with Kieran Fenn fms.
Monday, 26 September, 7-8.30pm.

Fee: $25/session or $45/series of 2 sessions

We are planning another interesting session on a movie for September or October. More about it in the next newsletter.
