These internet pages owe their origin to a series of talks and discussions on the Sunday Scripture readings at Mass and the opportunity this presents for discussing some current topics relating to religion and Christian life. The series was arranged for Monday nights, from 7pm to 9pm, at Scoil Mhuire, Ennistymon, as follows: October 10th (for 29th Sunday of the Year), 24th October (31st Sunday), November 14th (Christ the King), November 28th (2nd Sunday of Advent), December 5th (3rd Sunday of Advent), December 19th (Christmas Day).
The earlier talks give treat of some introductory questions on the place of Scripture in Christian living. For the Scripture readings relevant information is given on the original setting, followed by reflections on application to present day Christian life. The second talk presents an occasion to discuss some question of importance being currently discussed, for instance modern atheism, secularism, questions related to evolution such as creation, cosmology, Darwin, Dawkins, genesis chapter 1 and 2.
After the first meeting it became clear to the speaker that something more enduring that a mere encounter was indicated, resulting in this present internet sit, with bibliographies, internet links to relevant sites and such like.
