Bishop Graham: Teaching evening on ‘Freedom’
November 24 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on 7th December 2020 at 7:00 pm
Following teaching evenings in previous years on issues such as Prayer, the Problem of Evil and, Brexit, this year Bishop Graham (Bishop of Kensington, and former Principal of St Mellitus College) is hosting an evening looking at the theme ‘Freedom’.
The evening session will be taking place this year via Zoom (of course!) and will be offered twice – on Tuesday 24th November from 8 pm to 9.30 pm, and Monday 7th December from 7 pm to 8.30pm – so people can choose which to come to. It is open to anyone – clergy and laity – in or loosely connected to churches in the Kensington Area, and should be an excellent time to think together about how our Christian faith works out in practice through one of the most important ideas of our time. It will not assume prior theological knowledge, though hopefully will be a theologically rich discussion!
Freedom is one of the big ideas of our culture. We long for it, fight wars over it and guard our freedoms jealously. Some have even seen the imposition of restrictions during the pandemic as an infringement of civil liberties. Christian faith also speaks of freedom, yet in ways that can seem strange, with ideas such as obedience to the will of God, and the value of service. What, then, is a Christian understanding of freedom and how does it differ from secular ideas? During this evening, with opportunity for questions and interaction, Bishop Graham will explore how a Christian understanding of freedom can be truly liberating.
