Winter Weekend: Prophetic Imagination (Includes Dora Turbin Lecture)

  • Hinsley Hall 62 Headingley Lane Leeds, LS6 2BX (map)

Prophetic Imagination

In the year of CPW’s 75th Anniversary we will use stories of inspirational people who have been part of CPW’s history to find ways to respond to challenges today.

The speaker for the Dora Turbin Lecture on Saturday 15th will be David McLoughlin, Emeritus Fellow of Christian Theology at Newman University, Birmingham. In his research he explores the relationship between theology and everyday life. On the challenge of prophetic imagination in 2020, David says “in every age we need men and women who open up for us the prophetic imagination of a Moses at the burning bush, or Hosea and Amos in a time of national crisis and of Jesus in his time”.

The chaplain is Columban Father Jim Fleming who worked in Pakistan for 20 years and now raises awareness about missionary outreach and supports asylum seekers in Birmingham. Ellen Teague is part of the Columban Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Team, and works as a Catholic journalist on justice, peace and ecology issues. She has been involved with Catholic Peoples Weeks since the late 1980s.

The weekend will run from lunch on Saturday to after lunch on Sunday. A day guest rate is available for those who would like to attend on Saturday only (lunch included).

Children are welcome as day guests and childcare will be available during the Dora Turbin Lecture.
