Who is my neighbour?
This Autumn join us on Monday evenings at St Martin in the Fields for their series, Who is my neighbour? afterwards we will go to a local restaurant to continue the unpick what's been said as we continue the debate.
What does the Christian commandment to love one's neighbour as oneself actually mean for us today? Lectures by renowned theologians and practitioners will reflect on this subject in relation to issues of ecology, immigration, fear and discrimination, the present political climate in the UK, Europe and the USA and how the lives of our poorest neighbours may in fact be God's gift to us as a church and as a nation.
