In Conversation With … Philip Orr (Author and historian) @ Contemporary Christianity
Jun 23 @ 7:30 pm

What response, if any, should the churches make to the commemoration of the Easter Rising?

Philip will outline some of the key events, characters, causes and results of Easter 1916. He will then lead a discussion on possible approaches churches might take to the commemoration.

The evening will include a short slideshow illustrating the the main events and characters of the time.

In 2012 Contemporary Christianity commissioned and delivered a tour of the play '1912: A Hundred Years On' as our contribution to the beginning of the Decade of Centenaries.

You are invited to join us for this evening to help us shape our thinking based on the research into 1916 that Philip has recently done.

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.
