2 EVENTS NOT TO BE MISSED!
Recognising & Resisting Empire in the Bible, the church and beyond (21-22 March)
“The Uprising of Jesus” in an Easter context carries the dual sense of Jesus’ revolution and his resurrection. Both have everything to do with Empire: Jesus is crucified as a terrorist because he resists the Roman Empire and its occupation in the name of God’s reign. Jesus is raised because he refuses to make a deal with Empire, and astoundingly, the New Creation of the Reign of God is born on Easter Sunday. The risen Jesus calls us to walk that same Way of the Cross. Our Easter commitment is to recognise and resist Empire in all its forms today.
Sunday 21 March 6.30-8pm

Which lives need to matter more than they do now? (Saturday 20 March, 11am)
Naming the Elephants in the Room” is the title of the theme talk for the Holiday Forum in a Day on Saturday 20 March. The question at issue is which lives need to matter more in our churches than they currently do.
I will be talking to Professor Anthony Reddie and Revd Dr Munther Isaac about the way our churches need to recognise and deal with the issues of white privilege here in the UK, and the situations faced by the Christian church in Israel, Palestine and the Occupied territories.
Anthony Reddie is the Director of the Oxford Centre for Religion & Culture. Two of his most influential books are Is God Colour-blind? and Theologising Brexit.</p
