Ebor Lectures


Ebor lectures are on Wednesday evenings at 7pm at York Minster or York St. John University. The theme this year is "The Challenge of Climate Change: Eco-crisis, Sustainable Living and the Future of God's Planet.
Here are a few that appeal to me - fancy going?
Wed. 29th Oct: "Silence in heaven: Reading Climate Change through the Book of Revelation" by Timothy Gorringe (I've read a few of Gorringe's books and I like them).
Wed. 4th March: "Creation, Ecological Crisis and the Global Poor" by Elaine Storkey
25th March: Rowan Williams - lecture title to be confirmed.
22nd April: "Disturbing the Present" by John Sauven (director of Greenpeace)
6th May: "Consider the lilies of the field: How Luke's Gospel could save the planet" by Mary Grey
I'm sure the full list of lectures will be available on the website soon!
