SOFIA | LECTURES | Open explorations of religion, spirituality and meaning | Thursdays | 7.30pm

[Edited extract from public address]

'Sea of Faith' is not a church, but a network of people who are seeking a radical reappraisal of past religious traditions in order to meet today's spiritual challenges.  

The Network affirms the continuing importance of religious thought and practice even though it acknowledges that religion, like art and poetry, is a purely human creation.

SoFiA Network Website - Members and non-members are encouraged to comment on Articles and Blogs, as well as to participate in on-going discussions in Blog Archives.

Cost: Gold coin donation appreciated.
Lectures are followed by questions, discussion and refreshments.
All viewpoints are welcome.

Venue: Carlton Library Meeting Room, 667 Rathdowne Street (corner Newry Street), North Carlton.  Melways Map: 2B J2.
