There is increased interest in this July’s Living Theology weekend in York, (29th-31st). This year the bookings are up, perhaps as people are looking forward to enjoying the results of the major refurbishments to the facilities at the Bar Convent and visiting their Living Heritage exhibition.
The speakers at Living Theology are nationally known, talking on topics of crucial and up-to-date importance. Fr Nicholas King SJ, who has published his own “fresh” translation of the Greek Bible will be there. He will be exploring the biblical background to Catholic Social Teaching, referring to Human Dignity, to Solidarity and to the Option for the Poor. Fr John Moffat SJ will continue this theme by talking about the Common Good, including Pope Francis’s vision in Laudato Si, and in addition reflecting on ‘Ethics for Christians’ in the 21st century. The third speaker, Fr Michael Smith SJ, will discuss the ideas of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (scientist, priest and mystic), and also talk on the ‘Love of God’ as understood in St John’s First Letter.
