Amazing Grace

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: A Life of Prayer, Learning and Love

Sunday, July 5, 2020

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).
