Best and Worst at UTC

Here’s some of the reflections shared at a workshop at United Theological College. The Imago workshop is designed to explore the conflicted nature of human beings. Participants are given a selection of news stories from the local newspapers. The news carries disasters and rescues, tragedies and triumphs, criminals and heroes. What does it mean? I used one newspaper story of people doing inspiring stuff, described my feelings about it, and pointed out that it illustrates people at their best and at their worst. In groups of four, participants were invited to look at their newspaper sheets. They looked for public stories which illustrate the best in people and the worst in people. As we gathered this all together we were able to reflect on the ways God engages with us, at our worst, at our best.
