The first lecture in the series was delivered by Rowan Williams. Following lectures were delivered by Stanley Hauerwas, Sarah Coakley, Michael Northcott, Sarah Teather, and Sam Wells, the Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, concludes the series on the 14th November.
“With the UK voting to leave the European Union and with realisation of increasing division,
xenophobia, and confusion over future national and international relationships, the St Martin-in-the-Fields Autumn Lecture Series examines the crucial question: Who is my Neighbour?
What does the Christian commandment to love one’s neighbour as oneself actually means for us today. Lectures by renowned theologians and practitioners will reflect on this subject in relation to issues of ecology, immigration, fear and discrimination, the present political climate both in UK, Europe and the USA and how that the lives of our poorest neighbours may in fact be God’s gift to us as a church and as a nation.”
