 Easter 2020 : Reflections

  Dear FriendsEaster Hope

  The long journey through Lent
  and Holy Week to Easter has
  this year been overshadowed,
  devastated, by the coronavirus
  pandemic. Not since 1918-19,
  when Spanish Flu wrought
  havoc in a war-weakened world to claim 40 million lives,
  have we experienced something like the present pandemic
  in such a widespread way.

God in Love Unites Us Additional Study Guide

The Cumbria District has been encouraging conversations within circuits about the 2019 Methodist Conference Report ‘God in Love Unites us’ concerning marriage and relationships, and the provisional resolutions contained within that report which will be voted on at the April District Synod, and ultimately at the 2020 Methodist Conference.

The guide can be found here....
