Please feel welcome to attend our upcoming meeting on Thursday 25 February, at 1:30 pm, Trinity-at-Waiake Methodist Church, cnr 864 Beach and Hebron Rds, Waiake.
Our meeting has two topics.
First is a demonstration of how to make DNA using the ordinary kitchen equipment you can find in a church kitchen. While we are making the DNA - it is a fascinating demonstration - we will discuss some of the current ethical issues and concerns around genetic engineering.

The presenter is lay preacher Graeme Finlay. Graeme has a PhD in cell biology. He worked with Auckland Cancer Society Research Laboratory on anticancer drug development for 20 years. He has just retired from lecturing on General Pathology in the Dept of Molecular Medicine and Pathology, Auckland. He also has an interest in theology with a BTh from the University of South Africa.

Second is a short presentation of the A1 and A2 poster prints by David Bell for the upcoming video on Herman Hesse's poem The Glass Bead Game.

You can check the prints with associated overview at the link below

A selection is being prepared for publication in the SMN journal Paradigm Explorer.

Also: a timely background read in our era of the Covid-19 pandemic, attached.

Yet churches too can grow, adapt and change for the better. The MDF woodcut was printed as a monotype sequence, The Cross in Central Otago. You can learn more about how we do theology from the link.
