The Rutland Theological Society

aims to provide an inter-denominational forum, with a stimulating programme of topics and speakers, where current and theological ideas are shared. The Society does not promote any particular school of thought, but is open to the whole range of theological opinions and seeks to promote knowledge, understanding and debate.

Theological Resources for Interesting Times

Speaker: Rev'd John Bell of the Iona Community

If the Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan doesn't re-issue an updated version of The Times They Are a-Changin', people of faith should at least try to offer some lifelines to a society bewildered by Brexit, Trump, Immigrants and the Economy. Prophetic communities such as the Church are called neither simply to critique woes or provide escapist fantasies. We have to identify and encourage hope rooted in present realities.

John is a member and employee of the Iona Community. With his colleagues in the Wild Goose Resource Group, he teaches in areas of liturgy, spirituality and social justice. He works across the globe and is an occasional broadcaster.
