Going Local

Spending time with Edge locals.

Community is an increasingly complex concept to grasp. We live with our family, friends, flat mates or even strangers, but we function more and more as independent units. The call to independence can be valid, however real success, love and change has always been found in the company of friends, foes and strangers on the hard worn path.

Therefore as we settle into the idea of moving out of 44 George we thought it would be great to start meeting up in homes with a few other locals. We have a number of people putting out their welcome mats to have you over for a spot of chit chat and kai. So if you have been around for ages or are just finding your feet at Edge, check out the homes below nearest you and touch base for the low down.

Formation: So Now What?

The Bible: Reading scripture in the mystical tradition.

Much of the continuity between biblical texts and our own journey is the meeting point of mystical experience. So how does this help us engage in scripture in a helpful and transformative way?

Formation: So Now What?

The Bible: How Jesus changes the way we read scripture.

To be a Christian is to make the claim that Jesus is the centre of our faith. And this means that Jesus is also the centre of how we read the bible - the whole story is reshaped by how we understand Jesus to be the word made flesh.

Formation: So Now What?

The Bible: Scripture and our transformation.

Our engagement with the Bible is ultimately about our transformation. Whether we read it together, read it alone, study it, or experience it, the aim is always to be transformed into new kinds of people. So what does this actually look like?

Formation: So Now What?

The Bible: How myths can be true.

The bible is full of texts that read like ancient mythology; a global flood, talking snakes, rebellious donkeys, and more. But how can we read these stories meaningfully in the modern world, and do they contain truth that we still need to hear?
