Rowan Williams in conversation with Paula Gooder.

About this Event

Premiered on YouTube and then available on catch-up.

Jesus’ resurrection is at the very heart of Christianity. The Easter stories tell of him meeting with his disciples, women and men, teaching anew the great message of God’s transforming love, and also doing the most ordinary things: he and his disciples walk, talk, cook and eat together. But as Rowan Williams says in his new book, ‘the resurrection of the Lord is a beginning, not an end – an event which changes forever the landscape in which we live’. How can we live the story of the resurrection this Easter, in such a time of loss, uncertainly and suffering?

Rowan Williams and Paula Gooder will be in conversation about the meaning of the story at the centre of our faith: what Jesus' resurrection means to how we live, how we pray, how we change the world, and how we die.

Rowan Williams is a poet, theologian, Honorary Professor of Contemporary Christian Thought at Cambridge University, the Chair of Christian Aid, and was the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury. His latest book is Candles in the Dark: Faith, Hope and Love in a Time of Pandemic (SPCK 2020).

Paula Gooder is the Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral and a leading Biblical scholar. Her latest book is The Parables (Canterbury Press, 2020), in her Biblical Explorations series.

The event is free, but if you are able to make a donation to the continuing learning programme at St Paul’s Cathedral when you register for the event we would be very grateful.
