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.
- 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.
The Call to Living Sustainably and its impact on Community, Fellowship and Mission.
Contemporary Christianity’s theme for 2017 is: “Just Living in a Post-Truth World.” Join us for a half-day seminar to explore the inter-connectedness of concern for the poor, concern for creation, stewardship of the earth’s resources, and the transformative potential of the Christian commitment to these principles in this “post-truth” era. Contributors include:
We learn from our gardens to deal with the most urgent question of the time: How much is enough?
