Bless your enemies; pray for those who persecute you: worship to mend and reconcile.

Wednesday 1 November 2017

10.30 a.m. - 3.30 p.m.
St Luke’s Church

St. Luke's is about 10 minutes walk from South Kensington & Sloane Square Tube Stations and directions can be seen on the church website: http://www.chelseaparish.org/mapanddirections.htm

Speakers: Bishop Christopher Cocksworth, and Bishop Brian Castle

Christopher Cocksworth is bishop of Coventry and previously Principal of Ridley Hall, Cambridge. A prolific author, Christopher has served on the Liturgical Commission and is currently chair of the Faith and Order Commission.

Brian Castle was, prior to retirement, Bishop of Tonbridge, and is currently honorary research fellow at Exeter University and assistant bishop in Bath and Wells. Previously he had been Director of Pastoral Studies at Ripon College Cuddesdon.

+Christopher will speak to “Father, Forgive”: Coventry’s contribution to breaking the cycles of enmity’. He’ll tell something of the story of Coventry’s ministry of reconciliation and he’ll make use of its Litany of Reconciliation with its powerful refrain, ‘Father, Forgive’. What is so interesting about the Litany is that by omitting ‘them’ it confesses complicity rather than apportioning blame. The instinct of Coventry immediately after the bombing of the Cathedral in 1940 was the need to reach out to enemies rather than condone further cycles of retaliation and revenge. This history - and its ongoing story of reconciliation - gives something of a framework for the issues that we discuss and their liturgical implications.

+Brian, in his talk 'Reconciliation and Remembering Rightly' will reflect on his own work into reconciliation to get people thinking about the various steps for how that needs to be reflected in liturgy'
