Political Night Prayer

Our second political night prayer takes place at the Cotteridge Church on Sunday 4th December. Come to meet and share refreshments from 7:00pm. Night prayer begins around 7:30 with a simple liturgy and music, readings and stillness, and time to listen to one another. Our reflections and conversation will be stimulated and guided by guest speaker Keith Hebden, Director of the Urban Theology Unity and author of the recently-published Re-enchanting the Activist. We also welcome Christian Aid partner, Nyolo Tabu Honorine, who will bring insights from her life in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The political night prayer follows in the tradition of Dorothee Soelle and others who organised the Politisches Nachtgebet in Cologne from 1968 to 1972. It is a simple idea, in which worship is the context for unfettered thinking and praying, listening and speaking about our political life together, and how to think it as Christian people. It is a place for nurturing friendship and alliances in our various commitments to living faith in public.

The theme of this next meeting, in light of the UK referendum, US elections, and the persistence of domestic and international aggression, is Interdependence.
