NEWS: CIP does Scriptural Reasoning in Rome

last modified Oct 30, 2019 10:55 AM
CIP has led a two-day Scriptural Reasoning workshop in Nemi, Rome, at the invitation of the Service of Documentation and Study Forum and the Societas Verbi Divini Generalate, which took place with over 40 participants from around the world.

The team of six experienced facilitators (Mr Syed Razawi, Miss Nadiya Takolia, Dr Daniel Weiss, Mrs Lindsey Taylor-Guthartz, Professor David Ford and Mrs Sarah Snyder) were warmly welcomed by the SEDOS-SVD organizing team and an enthusiastic group of participants. The workshop, which took place at the Centro Ad Gentes with spectacular views of Lake Nemi, had around forty five participants representing many different corners of the globe including India, Germany, Nigeria, Mexico and more.

Amongst the text themes which we reflected on together were ‘Covenant’ and ‘Neighbours’. The workshop also included a presentation on how SR can be adapted for different contexts such as chaplaincy, hospitals, schools and womens-only SR. And of course, there was plenty of time to discuss all things inter-faith over wonderful Italian food and coffee! It was an unforgettable time for both the Cambridge team and the participants, many of whom left feeling inspired, motivated and equipped to take SR forward in their respective communities.
