Should a wife submit to her husband? - Saturday 22 June, 10.20am-12noon

You are warmly invited to a talk about how women today read a biblical passage about marriage – Ephesians 5. 21-33.  Jo Logan will be summarising the results of her recently completed PhD, called ‘Marriage made in heaven?’, which was based on research carried out among groups of women living in Hertford and Welwyn Garden City.  Anyone interested in the topic is very welcome to the talk, which will be at St Andrew’s Church, Hertford on Saturday 22 June from 10.30am to 12pm.
