1916  A Hundred Years On is yet another creative response to the current decade of political centenaries that have shaped our country for better or for worse. It's a winter's night; snow has made driving across the Sperrins impossible. Louise and Bronagh, with similar but different backgrounds, end up in the back room of a pub. A conversation they never expected starts about their families and about 1916, the Somme and the Rising.

The accumulation of power by arms companies and the influence of militarism have continued for over a century. The time has come for people of faith to address these issues and to take seriously Jesus' words, "those who take the sword will perish by the sword." Dr Alan Storkey is an economist, sociologist and artist. He the author of War or Peace: The Long Failure of Western Arms. Elaine Storkey is a theologian, philosopher, social scientist and broadcaster. Norman Hamilton (OBE) is convenor for Public Affairs for the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and was previously the minister of Ballysillan Presbyterian Church. Public Theology explores the relationship between Christian conviction and the broader social and cultural context in which the Christian community lives. The Catherwood Lecture in Public Theology has been an annual event since 1998.
