Alpha provided us with a unique opportunity—a chance to have conversations about faith with a diverse group of people, who are at different stages of their faith journey. I came away from it feeling how it was great that we could all learn from one another.
We don’t get many opportunities to talk about some of the questions that the course addresses—such as how can I have faith, how can I pray, etc. It was nice to be part of a forum that encourages asking questions. Some participants were revisiting these questions and others were considering them for the first time, but for all there was time to think about these things.
It was a privilege to share thoughts and experiences about these questions with the people at our table. I felt encouraged and strengthened by our discussions and I hope that was true for the others at our table also. We all agreed that the new video series put together by Alpha is really good. Some of the interviews with the people in those videos were so good and have also stayed with me (Corrie ten Boom, Paul Cowley).
