Ecumenical Bible Week is now in its fifth year and runs from Pentecost Sunday (20th May) to Trinity Sunday (27th May). Rev Ken Rue co-chairs this week together with Fr Kieran O’Mahony. This year’s theme is “Handing on Faith: Crisis, Challenge and the Great Commission” and the key verse is “I handed on to you what I myself received (1 Corinthians 11: 23).
The Church of Ireland involvement in the week’s events is significant. Archbishop Jackson is one of the panellists at the Thinking Allowed session on Thursday 24thin Holy Cross Diocesan Centre, Clonliffe. He will be joined by Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armagh and three married couples. The discussion will focus on the question: “What have we from our experience discovered about living and passing on the faith?” The panel will be chaired by DCU Chaplain, Philip McKinley and there will be an opportunity for audience participation.
During the week there will be talks in 10 different places. Local venues and topics included are:
Arklow, St Saviour’s Hall, Tuesday 22nd @ 8pm – Can we share our faith without being annoying?
Greystones, St Patrick’s Hall, Wednesday 23rd @ 7.30pm – Our special way of talking about God
