These evening sessions give time to explore Holy Scriptures as part of a group, contributing to a discussion around a theme from your own faith perspective.

Scriptural Reasoning is a particular method of engagement with different world faith scriptures– perhaps focused around a theme, such as Light, or for Abrahamic faiths around a shared person e.g. Moses. For more information on Scriptural Reasoning, the following website is an excellent resource:

Handy Guide to Scriptural Reasoning

What is ‘Scriptural Reasoning’?

Scriptural Reasoning is an opportunity to read your sacred text alongside people of different faiths, who will also be sharing their sacred texts. Often, it will be around a theme e.g. Food or a shared person (if focusing on the Abrahamic traditions) e.g. Moses

 Why take part?

Scriptural Reasoning is an interesting way of discovering something about different religious traditions and even your own. It helps to emphasise what we might have in common but also what makes us different, and is a great way to engage with different sacred texts.

How does it work?

Because the sessions are based around a theme, you can come along to just one or the whole series! Bring along a verse or short passage from your own sacred text(s) that relates to that evening’s theme and talk about it with others. Someone from the St Philip’s Centre will facilitate the evening’s discussion, and refreshments will be available.  Don’t forget to book!
