Renewal and Reform - Revd Dr Susan Durber

7pm, 18 SEPTEMBER, Wessex Centre, Inner Close, WinchesterCathedral

Renewal and Reform:Finding Common Ground on the Reformation after the Ecumenical Movement

Revd Dr Susan Durber

How have perspectives on the Reformation changed since ourchurches have grown closer and begun to listen to each other’s stories? Doesthe Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification of 1999 change how weunderstand what happened in 1517? Are we breaking down the distance and thestereotypes that made this period so difficult for us to ‘read’ with care? IsThomas Cromwell now redeemed by fiction, or history? How is it that Protestantscan now go on pilgrimage and Catholics read the Bible is small groups? Does theReformation need to divide us still, or can we find a common understanding? Howis the ecumenical movement marking the anniversary of Luther’s protest? What,from this year of commemorations, might take us forward as the one, holy,catholic and apostolic church?

SusanDurber is a minister of the United Reformed Church, serving in Taunton,Somerset. She is the Moderator of the Faith and Order Commission of the WorldCouncil of Churches, which has as its mission to ‘serve the churches as theycall one another to visible unity in one faith and in one Eucharisticfellowship’. She has served pastorates in Manchester, Salford and Oxford, beenPrincipal

A Reforming Imagination - Dr Michael Jagessar

7pm, 20 SEPTEMBER, Wessex Centre, Inner Close, WinchesterCathedral

A ReformingImagination: Conversation Points for Today

Dr Michael Jagessar

2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.Sixteenth century Europe witnessed political, intellectual, cultural andreligious upheaval that reshaped Europe (and what followed), setting in placestructures, beliefs and values/ethos that would not only define the continent inthe modern era, but also its missional and ecclesial exports to the ‘ends ofthe earth’. There is much that the European reformers challenged, troubled,questioned and changed. There is also much that it re-inscribed, shut-down andmarginalised in its own effort to manage confessional positions, geo-politicsand various alliances. I am interested in the impulses around the reformingimagination, the complexities and compromises of/by its deployment then andover the years, and both the relevance and challenges of a reforming habit fortoday. Should a reformer be nailing some theses today: what would these be? Ishall be speaking as a minority within a minority ecclesial tradition that issupposed to be both uniting and reforming.

Michael Jagessarbrings plenty experience to subversion and out-of-the-box discourse. He happensto be a minister of the United Reformed Church (UK), adding colour to theleadership and helping to reshape its global and intercultural ministries. Inhis teaching he has dabbled in ecumenical theology, interfaith studies, blackand contextual theologies at the Queens Ecumenical Theological Foundation(Birmingham, UK) from 2002 to 2008; Liturgy and Worship and Practical theologyat the Cambridge Theological Federation (2010-2014). To make some sense of theabove you need to visit his webpage for more on him and his writings(https://caribleaper.co.uk/). Michael is currently involved in a new project ofthe Council for World Mission (CWM), the Discern and Radical Engagement (DARE)annual Global Forum which engages with a selection of topics and concerns thatdisturb mainline biblical and theological scholarships. Michael is Caribbeanwanderer at large.

The Calling of Creatures like us - Prof Neil Masser

7pm, 25 SEPTEMBER, Wessex Centre, Inner Close, WinchesterCathedral

The Calling of Creatureslike Us: Thinking with Reformation Traditions about what it Means to be Human

Prof Neil Messer

What does it mean to be a human being or live a human life?More particularly, what does it mean to live well as a human being? Are thereparticular ways of being human that fulfil what a human life is supposed to beabout? Questions like these might not often be asked explicitly, but many areasof modern life – from the practice of health care to economics and politics –depend on answers to them, whether those answers are stated or just assumed.Focusing particularly on the practice and ethics of health care, this lecturewill explore how the Reformation heritage, as expressed in theologians such asKarl Barth and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, can offer resources for thinking throughthese questions. It will thus offer a test-case of how a sixteenth-centurytheological movement can engage with the problems and questions of twenty-firstcentury life.

Neil Messer isProfessor of Theology at the University of Winchester, where his research andteaching are concerned in various ways with the interactions of theology,ethics, health care and the biosciences. His latest book is TheologicalNeuroethics: Christian Ethics Meets the Science of the Human Brain (BloomsburyT&T Clark, Sept 2017). He is a minister of the United Reformed Church and amember of the Expert Group on Ethics of the Community of Protestant Churches inEurope (CPCE), for which he recently edited ‘Before I Formed You in the Womb…’A Guide to the Ethics of Reproductive Medicine from the Council of theCommunity of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE, 2017).

Luther, Paul and the Radical Power of Grace - Prof John Barclay

7pm, 26 SEPTEMBER, Wessex Centre, Inner Close, WinchesterCathedral

Luther, Paul and the Radical Power of Grace

Prof John Barclay

Did the Reformation misunderstand Paul?  So many recent scholars have argued, claiming to rediscover the 'original' Paul.  Here Luther's focus on Christ as the unmerited gift of God, with its radica lconsequences for the church, will be linked more positively to Paul's mission theology, where the incongruity of grace - its mismatch with the worth of its recipients - helped found innovative communities where ethnic boundaries were crossed and social norms recalibrated. There are therefore rich resources, in both Paul and Luther, forrethinking the radical power of grace in our contemporary cultural context. 

John Barclay has been at Durham as Lightfoot Professor of Divinity since 2003, having previously been professor at the University of Glasgow. His most recent book, the first of a two-part series, is a study Pauline theology from the perspective of histheology of grace, called Paul and the Gift (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2015),which explores the theological and social significance of the incongruity of grace in the formation of innovative communities, going beyond E P Sanders and the current antithesis between old and new perspectives on Paul. A collection of essays on Pauline Christians and Diaspora Judaism called Pauline Churches andDiaspora Jews has been republished in paperback in 2016 by Eerdmans.
