‘Healing – more or less’ with Tom Gordon, and including "conversations", workshops and a Communion Service
Saturday November 4th 2017
– Doors open at 9:30am
Histon Baptist Church
Tom Gordon will explore different aspects of healing using stories from his ministry as a Church of Scotland Minister and Chaplain and from his books of modern-day parables and reflections.
Using stories, he will explore these thoughts: "healing is wholeness and not cure; healing is about the past as well as the present; healing is about acceptance and not fixing; healing is profoundly spiritual"
Tom worked in parish ministry in two Edinburgh parishes for 20 years
before serving as chaplain at the Edinburgh Marie Curie Hospice for 15 years. He
retired from full-time work in 2009 and now gives his time to writing as well
as facilitating bereavement programmes (the Acorns programmes in Edinburgh and Stepping Stones programmes in
East Lothian) and offering spiritual-care training and support. He
is currently working on a second book on issues of bereavement, grief and loss
as a follow-up to one of his earlier books, New Journeys Now Begin (www.ionabooks.com). He is married with three grown-up children and two grandsons.
He lives in Port Seton, East Lothian, Scotland.
