Belfast Cathedral invites the public, politicians, business people, students and anyone with an interest in public theology to a series of five lunchtime events focused on Brexit during Lent.
Wednesdays in Lent is a collaboration between the Cathedral and the Corrymeela Community. The programme is entitled ‘Theology in the City – Brexit, Borders and the Book of Ruth.’
Beginning on March 13, and continuing on March 20 and 27 and April 3 and 10, each session will run from 12 noon until 2.30pm and will include a short service of Holy Communion, lunch, and a talk which will be followed by discussion.
This series is facilitated by Glenn Jordan from Corrymeela.
Today's session is:

Chapter 2 of the book introduces us to the fragile lives of those who are poor and to the potential dangers that face migrant workers. By looking at the possible origin of the book we might hear a counter-narrative to the one most often told about strangers. What counter narratives exist as we stand on the cusp of major change?
