PTIJ and FAFI invite you to join us for our weekly gathering of learning and prayers, beginning a new mini-series:

The Dignity of the Human Person: The Concept of "Freedom"

(Please note that we have moved to one hour later in honour of summer time, to experience our prayers at sunset).

Dr. Antje Jackelén will offer a Christian teaching based on Luther's 'The Freedom of the Christian', in conversation with Peta Jones Pellach.
