Hats and Hobbies
Local enthusiast Mavis Jennings, well known for her promotion of creative hobbies and the importance of good design, has been asked by St Paul's Cathedral to conduct occasional lessons for small groups in her Cunninghame street home. Called, 'Hats and hobbies', there would be no charge for tuition and a small amount for materials with homework set as follow up. Friends coming as a small group could be fun! With Summer Holidays coming, Mavis is looking for preloved hats to be used for makeovers and to foster creative ideas. It is surprising what can be done by beginners with even a discarded sports hat! St Paul's will send further details in the new year for those indicating interest.

'Hear the stories, stories indeed reflect our common humanity and bind us to one another in a common destiny, apparently even beyond time and space". William Bausch
The study focuses on the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDG) and the words from the prophet Isaiah:
Is not this the fast that I choose: to lose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless pour into your house; when you see the naked, to cover them, and not to hide yourself from your own kin? Isaiah 58:6-9
These Lenten studies use the SDGs, scripture, and stories from around the world to unpack the call of Isaiah 58 and to encourage us to respond to the challenges posed by the goals as we seek to answer Isaiah's call to us all, as God's people.
There will be a Sides people's meting for those who welcome and collect the offertory in church and a Readers Meeting for those who read or are interested in reading in church - in March.
