After a delightful summer where I’ve mostly been based at home, I’m back on the road again and this week began a ten day tour taking in the Lake District, Cardiff, Oxford, Bristol, Swanwick and Germany.
I’ve begun a lecture tour with Stuart Murray Williams of the Anabaptist Network visiting theological colleges and other training institutes under the banner of Prophetic Voices. The Day Conference looks at the contributions of Celtic, Anabaptist and New Monastic voices and has generated a lot of interest and a good response from those in attendance. As a Community we are exploring what partnership with the Anabaptist Network means, are working together with them on the Crucible Course, www.urbanexpression.org.uk/crucible, exploring the idea of a joint gathering at Whitby next year. Stuart is a very able theologian, a stimulating thinker and a great teacher on post Christendom which is the context in which we are looking at the three voices. I’ve enjoyed working with him, thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed meal with him and his wife, Sian, in Bristol the other evening. One common feature of Anabaptist, New Monastic’s and Celts is that of food and eating together. My reducing weight and reduction in waist line was dealt a severe blow as we enjoyed a relaxed but lovely meal accompanied by fine wine, capped off with a lovely malt whisky (Tobermory). There is great value in partnerships and considerable pleasure in sharing with friends.
Details of further days will be published on the website.
