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.

How do we escape the economic trappings of western consumerism to live just lives of simplicity, generosity and hospitality while being aware of our responsibilities to others in our local community and the wider world?

This practical workshop will draw upon local experiences to explore how we can:
  • live within our fair share of the world's resources and limits;
  • respond to poverty and inequality with radical generosity;
  • live restoratively through sacrificial relationships;
  • use our power to speak prophetically to our churches and wider society in order to cultivate a healthier relationship between God, people and creation.
Just Living is an annual workshop to inspire, enthuse and motivate Christians who are passionate about tackling injustice locally and globally through shared learning, reflection and worship.

We learn from our gardens to deal with the most urgent question of the time: How much is enough?
