“Joyful” is one of Wakefield Cathedral values and what better season of the year to look at this value than Eastertide. Over 5 weeks we will consider the Sunday gospel readings from John and particularly focus on how we can be an Easter People with Alleluia as our joyful song.

Series 2: Psalms for People Under Pressure

27th May – 24th June 2021, 8pm on Zoom

We’ve all felt under pressure in various ways this past year and the Psalms are a great resource to help us bring that experience before God. We’ll be studying a different Psalm each week and using this book by Jonathan Aitken as a resource to help guide us.

Jonathan Aitken knows a lot about being under pressure. He was an MP for 23 years then in the mid 1990s his world fell apart during a high-profile libel case which ended in him being given an 18 month prison sentence for perjury.

On his journey through prison Jonathan became committed to a deep spiritual faith and started to study theology. On release from prison he pursued his studies at Oxford University and discovered in the psalms what he calls “deep seams of ancient wisdom for coping with the pressures of modern life”

Join us and see if you agree with him?
