First of two in-depth sessions on the so-called wisdom literature of the Hebrew Scriptures (our Old Testament) which lays foundations for much of Judeo-Christian reflection through the ages and is still influential today, although often unacknowledged by secular thinkers. This is an important part of the Bible Jesus and Paul used and without which we cannot begin to appreciate the full impact of the New Testament.

We are in unfamiliar country. A faith urgently needs to seek new ways of being present to a culture adrift from any spiritual roots and unable to recognise its loss. We will be exploring, experimenting and in conflict for the foreseeable future. ‘We do not see what we shall become’ (1 John 3.2). This is both exciting and disorientating. How individuals and communities are to live and pray faithfully through such times needs much wisdom. Jesus describes his way of…

March 17, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
St Mark’s Church, Leeds Road
Harrogate, HG2 8AY United Kingdom

It might seem quite straightforward – Jesus said what he is reported as saying in the Gospels. At one level this is true. At another, however, things may be rather more complicated. A significant complicating factor is that, for more than a century, most scholars have suspected the existence of an entity known as Q. This Q is a hypothetical source that many scholars believe was copied by the authors of Matthew’s and Luke’s Gospels. If Q existed then, by…

Revd Prof Dr Charlotte Methuen The Reformation and Brexit: history and the position of the UK in Europe

November 17, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
St Mark’s Church, Leeds Road
Harrogate, HG2 8AY United Kingdom

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…
