The Wind, the Fountain and the Fire: Psalms and the Christian Imagination

Sunday, March 1, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

The Book of Psalms puts into words the messy complexity of how we actually experience our relationship with God and one another, as well as naming so many of the longings, joys and wild places of our private emotions.

Full of powerful imagery, these ancient poems of prayer have always formed the substance of daily prayer for Christians from cathedrals to monasteries. In his latest book, The Wind, the Fountain and the Fire (Bloomsbury 2019), Mark Barrett opens the Psalms as a gateway to scriptural prayer and offers a path through the five weeks of Lent. He will explore keys which can unlock both our understanding of scripture and insight into our own hearts and lives.

Dom Mark Barrett is a monk of the Benedictine community of Worth Abbey, Sussex. He is well known as a lecturer, preacher and retreat giver. His previous book Crossing: Reclaiming the Landscape of our Lives was published by Darton, Longman & Todd.

Conferences

A History of the Bible: The Book and Its Faiths

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

The Bible is the central book of Western culture. For the two faiths which hold it sacred, it is the bedrock, a singular authority on what to believe and how to live. For non-believers too, it has a commanding status: it is one of the great works of world literature, woven to an unparalleled degree into our language and thought. History, society and literature, as well as religion, have all been shaped by its authors through its narratives, laws, proverbs, prophecies, poems and letters.

John Barton is one of the great Biblical scholars of our time. The culmination of a lifetime’s work, his magisterial A History of the Bible was a Sunday Times bestseller in 2019. In it he explores how the Bible came to be compiled, defined and interpreted, showing that the Bible is not the fixed text it is often perceived to be but the result of a long and intriguing evolution.

In this evening he will explore how the Bible came into being, what contemporary Biblical scholarship teaches us about it, and ask what this means for people of faith. Does this new understanding threaten belief or can it contribute to living authentically as people of faith? What does it mean to regard the Bible as authoritative in the 21st century?

The Revd Professor John Barton is an Anglican priest and Biblical scholar. He is the Emeritus Oriel and Laing Professor of the Interpretation of Holy Scripture at the University of Oxford and is the author of A History of the Bible: The Book and Its Faiths (Allen Lane 2019).

The evening will be chaired by Dr Paula Gooder, Biblical Scholar and Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral, and include plenty of time for questions and answers.

Soulful Nature

Sunday, April 5, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

Nature isn't just good for us. We're part of it: created within the rhythms, seasons and cycles of God's good Creation. Little wonder, then, that we can feel disconnected from our own 'soulful nature' when we're cut off from the natural world; and that the soul can stir profoundly, when we step back outside to behold nature's beauty and wisdom.

On Palm Sunday, as we prepare to face into the pain and promise of Holy Week and Easter, Brian Draper, co-author of Soulful Nature, will ask reflectively how the season of spring can help bring life and light to the liturgical season, and enable us to lead lives more closely attuned to Creation, in a time of climate emergency.

Brian Draper is the co-author (with Howard Green) of Soulful Nature (Canterbury Press 2020). He works as a speaker, retreat guide, labyrinth curator and creative consultant, seeking to help people of all faiths and none to see the world from a creative and engaging spiritual perspective. His books include Soulfulness: Deepening the Mindful Life (Hodder 2016) and he is a regular contributor to BBC R4’s Thought for the Day.

The wisdom and insight of women in the Bible have been largely overlooked. Liz invites us to listen anew to the voices and stories of women such as Mary, Eve, Hagar and Ruth, using storytelling from the Bible and art.

We will explore what women and their identity in the Bible can teach us today about contemporary issues of leadership, relationships, love and power. By re-evaluating our thinking we will ask, are these women still relevant and what is there to rediscover and to teach us in the modern world?

The workshop will introduce and draw on the work of leading feminist theorists such as Naomi Wolf and theologians including Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza and Phyllis Trible.

The Ven Liz Adekunle is the Archdeacon of Hackney and a member of the Archbishops’ Task Group for Evangelism, and was previously Chaplain and Acting Dan of St John’s College, Cambridge. She is an associate at Westminster Abbey, Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen and is currently working on her part-time PhD in Feminist Theology at Cambridge University.

The Lost Message of Paul

Tuesday, April 28, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

Steve Chalke wants to start a new conversation about Paul the Apostle. He says that too often his words have been borrowed, lifted out of context and then put into the service of ideas, doctrines and behaviours which not only would he never have owned, but also would have strongly opposed. He says it is time to let Paul speak again.

He will argue that Paul has been so radically misunderstood that, for instance, original sin was never part of his thinking, and that justification by faith is actually based on a mistranslation of his words. Paul’s revolutionary message is that salvation is a gift of God’s grace to everyone, a result entirely of God’s faithfulness, not to do with our works, worthiness or even faith.

Join us as Steve invites us to hear Paul’s own words afresh, and in them find a new reformation and a new way of following Christ which offers liberation and welcome.

Steve Chalke is a Baptist minister, educator, broadcaster and activist. He is the founder of the Oasis Charitable Trust, Faithworks and Stop the Traffik. He is Anglo-Indian and a native south Londoner. He has authored over 40 books and is a regular presenter and commentator on television, radio and other media. His latest book is The Lost Message of Paul (SPCK 2019).

The evening will be chaired by Dr Paula Gooder, Biblical Scholar and Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral, and include plenty of time for questions and answers.

A Year of Grace: Exploring the Christian Seasons

Sunday, May 3, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

When we go to church, whether we go every week or just at Christmas and Easter, we step into a year-long story about God, and ourselves. David Hoyle will invite us to find our place in that story as he explores the cycle of the Christian year and the richness of the worship that goes with it. Each of its seasons, from the high feasts of Christmas and Easter to the long season of Ordinary Time, is a part of the drama, calling us to be alive to whole story of salvation. And as we approach Ascension Day, he will also reflect on what happens to our relationship with God when the risen Christ ascends from earth to heaven.

The Very Revd Dr David Hoyle is the newly installed Dean of Westminster and his latest book is A Year of Grace: Exploring the Christian Seasons (Canterbury Press 2019). He has a keen interest in theological education and has previously held positions at Magdalene College, Cambridge and Gloucester Cathedral, and is the former Dean of Bristol.

A Call to be Changed: Florence Nightingale and the Meaning of Vocation

Thursday, May 28, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

Florence Nightingale is famous for establishing the modern nursing profession. But Bishop Sarah Mullally says there is much more to her than that, and that it is time to appreciate her as a significant theologian, pioneering statistician, and a profound and questioning disciple and contemplative.

She also says that in her story we can find a lens to consider our own vocations. As Rowan Williams has written of Florence Nightingale’s challenging and transformative life: ‘a calling of any kind is a calling to be changed – it is not a calling to do a job, but to grow into a particular kind of humanity’.

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of her birth, Bishop Sarah will explore Florence Nightingale’s two-fold sense of vocation: to nursing and to her Christian faith. She will also explore how these two aspects have formed part of her own vocation and journey of faith, as both nurse and priest. In turn, she will invite us to ask ourselves: how should I discern and respond to God’s calling in my own life?

The Rt Revd & Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally is the Bishop of London. Bishop Sarah trained as a nurse at The Nightingale School of Nursing with the South Bank Polytechnic. She became the Government’s Chief Nursing Officer for England in 1999, and was made a Dame in 2005 in recognition of her contribution to nursing and midwifery. She left her post as Chief Nursing Officer in 2004 to pursue ordained ministry full-time and was installed as the Bishop of London in St Paul’s Cathedral on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth in 2018.

The evening will be chaired by Dr Paula Gooder, Biblical Scholar and Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral, and include plenty of time for questions and answers.

Amazing Grace

Sunday, June 7, 2020

St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

View on map

Grace is transformative. We sing about it, invoke it and thank God for it, but do we really understand it? Do we accept ourselves as worthy of God’s grace? Do we see ourselves as bringers of grace? And how we can deepen our understanding of what God intends by it in our daily lives?

Jarel Robinson-Brown will invite us to reflect on the familiar language of grace and to deepen our understanding of what God intends by and through it. He will explore the transforming nature of grace through the many hymns we sing about it, its scriptural roots and contemporary theological interpretations.

The Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown has been a Methodist Minister since 2013, and joined King's College London as the Methodist Chaplain in 2019. Prior to full-time ministry he studied classical music as a pianist and organist. Jarel is currently researching Coptic Monasticism and Religion in Late Antiquity. He has interests in Liberation Theology, Queer Theology and the life of the Prophets.

King David is one of the most vivid characters in the Bible. Complex and contradictory, he a man of great faith who lives a life of joyful intimacy with God and yet is still flawed, sinful and called to repentance.

His are some of the most memorable stories in the Bible. In his youth, he defeated the giant Goliath, danced before the Lord (to the embarrassment of his wife), and formed a passionate friendship with Jonathan. In his maturity he becomes King and his story darkens into war, family breakdown, heartrending grief at the death of his son and perhaps the darkest moment of all when he orders Bathsheba’s husband’s death in order to take her for himself.

But in the Gospels, Jesus is called Son of David, and David’s finer qualities are ones that point us to Christ and become evident in the story of Christ.

Janet Tollington will bring King David to life, exploring the light and dark of his life and character, asking what aspects of his story have resonance and relevance for us, and why he should matter to us as Christians today.

The Revd Dr Janet Tollington is an Old Testament scholar and a Minister in the United Reformed Church. She has taught Hebrew and Old Testament at Westminster College, Cambridge within the Cambridge Theological Federation, an ecumenical body for lay and ordained ministry training. A much-loved teacher, she is back with us by popular demand.

St Augustine often gets a bad press, for supposedly being anti-women and obsessed with sin and sex. So why is his writing still relevant in the 21st century, and how can it help us as Christians today to grow in our faith and discipleship?

Cally Hammond, who has translated Augustine’s Confessions for Harvard University Press, says he ‘couldn’t simply accept something because somebody told him to believe it. He had to make sense of it for himself’. In doing so he became one of the greatest Christian theologians. Cally will introduce his life and thought, and invite us to take inspiration from Augustine, and - like him – to ask questions which lead us to become wiser, kinder and more prayerful.

The Revd Dr Cally Hammond is Dean of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, where she teaches early Christian history, New Testament Greek and Classical Latin. She lectures and leads retreats introducing people to Augustine, and encourages people to learn from his love of Scripture, his prayer life and his personal dedication to God. She says of him ‘I feel as if I know him, that he’s a friend’. Her latest book is Augustine’s Life of Prayer, Learning and Love (BRF 2019).
