St Mark’s Centre for Radical Christianity
Spring 2017 Conference: Memories, Metaphor, Myth: talking of God in the 21st Century
Saturday 29th April 10am-4pm
Cost £14 (£5 concessions)
Dr Val Webb, author of In defence of doubt and Testing tradition and liberating theology will lead this full day conference. Val has delighted us twice already with seminar evenings on her books. Last year she was the keynote speaker at the Common Dreams Conference of Progressive Christianity in Brisbane. But now she returns to another theme on which she has written a couple of books, and which we are keen for her to share with us as it is a subject of great importance; namely, how we can credibly speak about God (not to mention to God).
