A Tapestry of Faith and Evidence – Christianity, Atheism, Spiritualism
This will be a dissertation by Les Bremner, who intends to show that the roots of Christianity and Spiritualism are identical and that Atheism does not exist. If this is proven to our own satisfaction, our spirituality can be confidently enhanced. Les’ talk will be based on his forthcoming book, A Tapestry of Faith and Evidence – Christianity, Atheism, Spiritualism.
Les Bremner was born in Glasgow in 1944, and began life in the industrial shipyard area of Linthouse. After many years in the Presbyterian and Anglican churches, his deep interest in the Healing Ministry led him to investigate paths of Spirituality. He was instrumental in the movement to reintroduce Healing in the Scottish Episcopal Church, and was the main author of its Code of Conduct for Healers. He trained in Healing with a secular group, the National Federation of Spiritual Healers, where he served on its Scottish Region Committee in parallel with his work for the Church. The NFSH position led to his appointment as Scottish Chairman of United Spiritual Healers, where he is responsible for the training and welfare of people of many faiths.
This, the last of three sessions on the theme of ‘Exploring Spirituality’ is intended to be of interest not only to Quakers, but also other spiritual seekers. All are welcome. Admission is free, but donations towards the QMH expenses will be gratefully accepted. Each session will probably comprise a talk, questions and answers, sharing experiences and discussion, and a time of meditation or silent worship. They will take place monthly on a Saturday afternoon, from 2.30–4.30 pm. Tea/coffee will be available for a modest charge from 2.00 - 2.30 pm.
