Faith Asking Questions
What it is…
It's great that you made it to our SFC Short Course: Faith Asking Questions. These 27 questions, grouped under 6 themes were chosen by people across the Diocese (maybe you!) through a survey about life’s enduring puzzles.
We love the way our experts approached these topics! Their task? To share a story or two, an inspiring idea, or something to spark conversation. Though you get 3 to 5 angles on each question, no one aimed to present a definitive answer - there is more to say on each of these complex human issues. That’s where you or your small group come in!
Conversations about these themes are age-old; we’ve captured part of our generation’s contribution to these conversations. You are invited to contribute too!
There are 2 pathways to experience this SFC Short Course…

Having peaceful discussions about faith things
We are so fortunate that the Anglican Communion has space for a range of interpretations on some theological issues. Many Anglican Christians understand that we can each apply reason to interpret Scripture and tradition. In this way, our thoughts combine to make the rich tapestry of understanding that is Anglicanism. With a prayerful approach, and willingness to listen and be open to the experience of others, it's possible to take part in the great Anglican idea that we can express unity in diversity.
Here are some hints about how to discuss issues of faith with respect and openness…
