Relationships and Emotions for Life

Relationships are essential to all our lives: without them we would not be human. Relationships – in families, neighbourhoods and churches – can be rewarding or pleasurable, but sometimes can be difficult or painful. God comes to us in various ways, but most profoundly God comes to us through people. Sometimes we are intensely aware of this, but more often we are hardly aware of it.

The purpose of this day is to consider some important aspects of human relationships and to reflect upon how emotions play a part in them. We will draw on resources from the Bible, Christian theology and psychology, and reflect on personal experiences. In particular, we will explore the challenges of conflict and forgiveness since they are essential to growth and maturity.Jeremy Thomson is a Christian educator who has worked in various formal and informal contexts for over forty years, aiming to build the church and equip people for creative discipleship. Following an early career in research engineering, he spent a number of years in Christian ministry (five in the Church of England) before becoming a volunteer relationship counsellor. He studied Biblical Interpretation and Systematic Theology at postgraduate level, and discovered the joys of facilitating adult learning.

He was Vice Principal of Oasis College of Higher Education in London until retirement in 2017. His book, Relationships and Emotions After Christendom (Paternoster, 2016), grew out of educating students about theology, emotions and relationships, as they prepared for various leadership roles.
