Would you like to help the minister in leading worship from time to time?  This is the question posed in an email forwarded by the Dundee Presbytery Depute Clerk: a series of three Saturday seminars are to be run by Angus Presbytery for those interested.  There is no fee for attendance but it is essential to register, and also to take along your own packed lunch.  More information is available from the Session Clerks.
 
Conversations in Discipleship: What if life in all its fullness was reflected in how we follow Jesus together?  Produced by the Mission and Discipleship Council for use by congregations, this booklet contains the following topics for conversation:

1.     Share a story about a time when your relationship with others shaped your journey of faith.
2.     Share a story about a time when you were taught or discovered something that changed the way you see God.
3.     Talk about something that Jesus said or did, which you find easy or natural to apply in your own life.
4.     Talk about something that Jesus said or did, which you find challenging to apply in your own life.
5.     How do you notice other people following Jesus in their everyday life?
6.     What have you found valuable from this time together that you will take with you in moving on from here?
