How can we keep on hoping?

Life & Learning @ Ludlow

Thursday 14 November
10:00am — 12:00noon

Ludlow Mascall Centre

A lecture by Fr Timothy Radcliffe, OP

For many young people the future appears to be sombre: the threat of ecological catastrophe, political turbulence, religious fundamentalism, and growing violence around the world. How then can we keep alive our hope and transmit this to the young?

Timothy Radcliffe OP will share how his experiences of the Middle East, especially visiting communities of Christians who face threat and violence, have strengthened his Christian hope. In the midst of all the suffering, Muslims and Christians often keep alive friendship and trust. New things are happening!

Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP is a Dominican friar and Catholic priest. He taught Scripture at Blackfriars, Oxford, for twelve years and ministered to people with Aids before being elected Provincial of the English Province in 1988, and Master of the Order from 1992 until 2001. Since then he has been an itinerant preacher and lecturer based in Oxford. He has written several books, including What is the point of being a Christian? which won the Michael Ramsey Prize for theological writing. His Alive in God: a Christian imagination has just been published. He is an honorary Doctor of Divinity of Oxford and of universities in France, Italy and the USA. He is a Sarum canon of Salisbury Cathedral.
