WYSOCS: The Transforming Vision workshops

Outline We’ll meet over seven Monday evenings, from 7.30–9.30pm:

23 Sep: Creation, Cosmos and Covenant: what is the world for? Discussion led by Gareth Jones.
7 Oct: Image, Office and Culture: creation talks! Is all the world a stage, or does history mean something?
21 Oct: Structure or Direction: what does sin pervert in creation? The heart, corruption and common grace. Richard Gunton offers a scientist’s perspective.
4 Nov: Law & Grace; Time & Eternity; Body & Soul; Earth & Heaven: are we wedded to dualisms? How does grace stand in relation to nature – above, against, alongside?
18 Nov: Gospel and Kingdom: any good news before Easter? Is atonement all we preach? Anthony Smith and Eline van Asperen share thoughts on incarnating the gospel.
2 Dec: The Church – and the people of God in society: what is Church for? Is there a Christian life outside it?
16 Dec: Vocation, Validation and Scholarship: what next? What is God’s general revelation? How do we find the manifold wisdom woven into creation? Mark Roques introduces Dooyeweerd's modal framework. Programme subject to modification.
