I'll soon be part of a theological symposium hosted by Trinity College Bristol, in partnership with Bristol Baptist College, exploring:
A Christian Response to the Refugee Crisis
The event is from 2 – 4 pm on Thursday, 15 October 2015, in the chapel at Trinity College. The plan is to hear and discuss three papers, including:
Rev Dr Knut Heim, ‘Attitudes Toward Foreigners in the Bible’
Rev Dr Helen Paynter, ‘Reflections on Jubilee in the Light of the Refugee Crisis’
Rev Dr Jon Coutts, ‘Who is my Neighbour? Questions of Proximity, Awareness and Responsibility’
This is a free public event, with coffee/tea provided afterward. For more information see the college website.
