‘Neurotheology: the Scientific Study of Religious Experience.’

Using modern scientific tools like MRI, Pet Scans, EEG, etc. along with sophisticated social science surveys, researchers are able to clinically describe what is happening when people are having religious/spiritual experiences. It is both interesting and inspiring.

‘The Art of Turning Problems into Opportunities’.

The title pretty well describes the content –   there will also be exercises people can do to see how to put it into practice.

Sponsorships are always welcome and for these we will arrange a display fresh flowers on the Chancel table. If you have a special person or an event to celebrate or remember, please contact Sharron: admin@rosslynhillchapel.com
