Event description

Description

Inaugural Lecture of the North Wales Theological Society

Professor Wayne Morris, University of Chester.

Religion, faith and spirituality has, for millennia, been a part of the fabric and landscape of Wales. While that has been predominantly Christian for the last 2000 years, other faith perspectives and forms of spiritual expression have nevertheless always been present. The place and role of religion in the twenty-first century is changing rapidly and, in Wales, there are characteristics of this transformation that are particular to the Welsh context. This lecture, presented from the perspective of a Christian theologian, explores the future of religion, faith and spirituality in Wales, the possibilities and challenges for dialogue and collaboration between people of different faith perspectives and none, and considers what a particularly Christian contribution to that might look like.

Wayne Morris is Professor of Contextual Theology and Director of the School of Humanities, University of Chester. He is the author of Theology without Words: Theology in the Deaf Community (2008) and Salvation as Praxis: A Practical Theology of Salvation for a Multi-Faith World (2014). He is currently working with colleagues across Wales on the publication of a book of essays on particularly Welsh Theology.
