with the Revd Dr Richard Topping, Principal of Vancouver School of Theology

An opportunity to learn about central topics of ongoing discussion within the Christian church. Topics we will explore include the Trinity, the Bible, creation and humanity, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Church and hope for this world and the next. In our discussion of these themes we will pay particular attention to the challenges and prospects for Christian confession in a time like ours. We will address questions like: ‘What difference does our confession of God as Creator make to the current ecological crisis?’, ‘What does it mean to be human if we are made in God’s image?’, ’What does Jesus save us from and for and how did he do it?’, ‘What’s Church for in these mobile disembodied times?’ The aim of the morning is to explore together central Christian teachings and so better able to make sense of our lives and the world.
