Rev. Keith Beardmore gave the Circle of Friendship a Lenten Talk accompanied by hymns which mean so much in the season of Lent. His talk took us through the problem of Evil and the mystery of suffering, sin and hope. In all of this, we were asked to think of the mystery of our relationships and reconciliation to one another. Examples were given of a parent’s love for their child, even when the child is adopted. Throughout all of this, we considered the mystery of God’s love for us, supremely shown in Jesus’ death on the Cross. After the talk and discussion, a raffle was held and Rev. Keith drew one of the winning tickets, which was his own number!
