Brainfood and Fellowship
Paul Meeth of Orange has been a book lover and book collector all his life and a slow but careful reader. In January for the last three years he has given free and independent public lectures on Bible-related topics in his 'Brainfood and Fellowship' series and this January he wants to continue this with a short series of three lectures on 'Cults – Christian and otherwise.'
“A lot of people cannot get away on holidays and this is something a bit different for them – a sort of a mini Summer School. We will concentrate on questions of psychology, behaviour, techniques and both short and long term impacts on people involved in various religious movements. Who joins, who leaves, and why? Some of these questions are complex and some of the evidence can be disturbing so people should know that the lectures would be most appropriate for a more mature audience,” said Paul.
The lectures will be on one a week, for three weeks during January at St James Presbyterian Church Hall on the corner of Anson Street and Mathews Avenue. Tuesday mornings on January 8, 15 and 22 between 10am and 12pm and repeated again on Wednesday nights between 7pm and 9pm on January 9, 16 and 23.
Paul is a lifelong Christian, bible student, past librarian and has a Master’s degree in New Testament Greek so he certainly has a wealth of knowledge to share.
“People who come along may find a challenge to their mind and their understanding. A lot of stuff that we will be talking about will be something that they may have never had to consider before.”
“It is also a chance to meet other people from across different dominations. A range of people come from varies towns, so this is an opportunity to be brought together by a particular topic,” said Paul.
