Bishop Chris Edmondson

This is an online-only event.

‘I’ve never known such a challenging and disturbing time in the life of our nation; it’s felt like we’ve been living on the edge of disaster, with hopes raised, and then dashed again and again’. These words, and the feelings they express, may well resonate with you in the light of the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, but they also describe the lived experience of the Old Testament prophet Habakkuk. Hope felt to be in short supply then, and Habakkuk, frustrated and troubled by what he saw going on, asked God some very difficult and honest questions. And along the way, he found it’s unwise to put God into an ‘easy to explain’ box.

Bishop Chris, Chair of the Scargill Council, would love to have your company, as over these days he tries to unpack the contemporary relevance of this little-known Biblical story, hopefully (!) discovering that God can meet us, and bring us hope, even in life’s most difficult seasons.
