Choosing Hope: From Enmity to Reconciliation
Where relationships have broken down and harm has occurred, we can live in ongoing enmity or take the difficult journey to heal and restore. Over three talks, Canon David Porter, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Chief of Staff and Strategy, will lead us on an exploration of what this means through the lens of the conflict in Northern Ireland, the post-war experience of Coventry Cathedral, and the challenges for the global church in a changing and divided world.
Transforming Conflict and Building Peace
Reconciliation may be an elusive quest, but there are solid practices and deep wisdom that creates the possibility of new beginnings. The story of Coventry Cathedral in 1940 puts forgiveness at the heart of this quest. Today’s conversation is more focussed on the role of truth and justice in building the peaceable kingdom. How we draw from across these perspectives will be the theme for this presentation.
