Context 3

Saturday 23 January

We met with a group of elders from the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, who have a held fortnight festival at Huddersfield Parish Church during the last three summers.

One of the discussion was based around conflicting expectations as two very different cultures and branches of Christianity met. The basis of the meeting was that there had been friction generated by sheer numbers of people worshipping and residing in one medium sized West Yorkshire church.

The resolution will be met through conversation and understanding each other’s context – with no small amount of give and take.
