The Denis Duncan Lecture 2018
November 15 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Revd. Dr. Doug Gay: Lecturer in Practical Theology at the University of Glasgow
Lecture Title: Discipleship as Relearning Self and World – a healing vision of human life
Abstract: The lecture takes as its starting point Hans Küng’s famous affirmation that “the kingdom is creation healed” and explores ways to integrate the theological concepts of salvation, discipleship and sanctification with the language of healing, therapy and growth which has wider cultural currency in western societies today. It considers how current widespread interest in discipleship across church traditions can be developed and revised, so as to save the concept from seeming out of reach of ‘mere Christianity’ and use it instead to promote an integrated ‘everyday’ vision of healthy human development.
Followed by panel discussion with Prof Jim McManus, Public Health director and LSE lecturer, and The Rev’d David Hutchinson, Chaplain to the University of Aberdeen
