After a period when the need for Nooma seemed to be uncertain, there has been a wonderful renewal of interest. Last night, as you can see, we had a full house for the latest DVD in the series ‘She’. Eileen produced some excellent food as usual (even though she was shattered after a hard day of box moving at work!) which soon disappeared.
We are used to the idea of God being described as Father but Rob Bell suggests that God is neither male nor female, but exhibits characteristics of both sexes. Using images of a single mother looking after her young daughter, he explained that the mothering instinct to protect and support her children was a fundamental human drive that speaks of the way God cares about his children. This prompted an interesting and wide ranging discussion about the role of women in society and the complementary nature of men and women.
