In the next two weeks we are going to explore a biblical basis for valuing and caring for creation. In the first week we will consider the Old Testament; the second week will focus on the New Testament and our relationship with nature from a gospel perspective. Overall, we will see how the Bible provides a fresh approach to tackling a number of contemporary problems. We will also look at some practical issues in our own lives, and finally we shall explore the Christian message of hope. This is vital for us and also for many people in the wider community who have lost confidence in the future.More info Add to basket
Economics is a social study with attitude. It claims to be science but cannot repeat its experiments, and its great perturbations rely on intangibles, what the great economist John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) called 'animal spirits'. The economy is a human construction, yet it dominates its originators like Frankenstein's monster. It is occasionally manageable but never mastered. It depends on the vote of every citizen of every country, a vote exercised by every economic act, and yet often even the mass of votes seems to make no difference. The economy is as simple as the most basic rural community engaging in barter can make it, and yet similar basic principles apply to the most complex industrial or post-industrial societies. It has moods and mathematics, trends and surprises, those who think they lead it and those whom it consumes (often the same people). We are all part of it and yet we observe it.More info Add to basket

Discovering the right resource to help you into a regular pattern of prayer and meditation may feel like a considerable challenge. Do you need daily reading notes, a devotional commentary, a book of prayers, songs, hymns, or maybe all of these? Quiet Spaces is a resource BRF has been developing for a number of years with the aim of providing a more reflective, meditatory selection of readings for regular use.Download
There are lots of ways to help promote Bible reading within your church - more will be added to this site in due course, so do follow us on Twitter and we'll let you know when new resources are available.
One way to do this visually is by printing a Bible Reading Resources poster - you can include this in your church newsletter or magazine.
There also a poster and a selection of other materials in the Bible Reading Resources Pack.
