Faith at the Crossroads
Faith at the Crossroads Leicester is at a global cross roads. People come from around 90 different countries, our ways of communicating is expanding and diversifying, the challenge to Christianity as we've known it is growing, as is the disconnectedness between people and politics.
The first decade of the 21st Century has seen rapid change. The optimism with which we greeted the New Millennium has partly evaporated during a decade in which terrorism has dominated international politics and Britain has embarked on two new wars.We still appear a long way from solving the global challenges of poverty, hunger, disease and climate change.
Compared with 10 years ago we are now learning to live with new insecurities as our financial and parliamentary systems have been found wanting. Shortly, we shall have choices about who we entrust with leadership for the next 5 years.
In Leicester, as a global cross-roads, these questions affect us all. How can the Church’s voice be heard speaking into these challenges in an increasingly secular culture?
In 5 lectures during Lent in the Cathedral, the Bishop of Leicester invites everyone to join him to reflect on these questions, using his experience of the Diocese over the last 10 years.
