Kenneth Leech Conference - Hope University Chapel
True Prayer: True Justice
Saturday 20 May 2017, 10am to 4pm
Hope University Chapel - A Day to Celebrate the Work of the Urban Theologian, Kenneth Leech
This conference has been convened by the Bishop of Liverpool, Rt Revd Paul Bayes.
Bishop Paulís purpose in calling this conference is to celebrate Kenís life and work, to encourage those who value Kenís wisdom and insight, to introduce Ken to a new generation and to foster an ongoing commitment to a prophetic theology and spirituality.
The conference should lead to action and further reflection. It is part of the work being done, across the country, by those who value true prayer and seek true justice.
Kenneth Leech was a committed Christian Socialist who drew on the historical precedents of the radical Anglo-Catholic tradition. He was a priest, a prophet and a theologian who was rooted in and resourced by a sacramental spirituality.
Alison Milbank will deliver the first keynote address entitled Subversive Orthodoxy and Anglo-Catholic Socialism.
After lunch the second keynote address will be delivered by George Guiver CR and will be called True Prayer: The Importance of Silence and Stillness in Urban Ministry.
