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.

In Conversation With Philip Orr and Joe Austin @ Contemporary Christianity

The Poppy and the Lilly

Joe Austin is a veteran of the Republican movement and a member of the National Graves Association. Philip Orr, having been a schoolteacher, is a local historian, a writer and facilitator. This is an opportunity to hear about the work Philip and Joe have done around these two poignant symbols. The evening will have both historical and contemporary contexts. You are invited to join us for this evening to think through this topic which is highlighted in a striking line in Philip's play Halfway House, when Bronagh turns to Valerie and says, "You can parade your courage in public but we can't!"
