November 17, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The English Reformation has been cited as evidence both for and against the decision of the UK to leave the EU.  Henry VIII’s idiosyncratically independent stance has been contrasted with the European dimension of Thomas Cranmer’s contacts and the influence of continental Reformers in England and in Scotland.  This paper will examine those arguments, and explore them in the context of the engagement of the Churches of England and Scotland in the debates surrounding Brexit.  What insights might the history…

January 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
St Mark’s Church, Leeds Road
Harrogate, HG2 8AY United Kingdom

The question of how we talk about God has become more and more confused in today’s western culture. Where might such a conversation start, and how might it proceed? Professor Wright argues for a radical and often surprising convergence between the problems we perceive in the world and the historical investigation of Jesus himself. This generates a new kind of ‘natural theology’, rooted in the biblical tradition but reaching out to embrace the wider world.

The Bible is the foundation of our faith, and we probably have our favourite bits, but what about the parts we don’t understand, or don’t agree with?  If it’s all the Word of God how do we navigate its terrain?  In this lecture, Bishop Helen-Ann shares some of her own reflections on a number of years pondering these questions.  Based on research conducted while on sabbatical leave in New Zealand in 2010 which resulted in the publication of ‘Making Sense…
