Event description

Description

Join us for the Micah Lecture on June 10 2019 in the Lady Chapel, Liverpool Cathedral.

This year’s Micah Lecture is your opportunity to hear Rev Canon Dr Angus Richie, Director of the Ecumenical Centre for Theology and Community in East London. Angus Ritchie has ministered in inner-city churches involved in community organising since 1998, playing a leading role in successful campaigns for the Living Wage, affordable housing and a cap on interest rates.

Over the last few years the lectures have been based on the verse from Micah 6.8, “God has shown you what is good…and what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God”. We hope that these events will encourage social justice activists and advocates to share their experiences and learn from others.

This is the 7th social justice Micah Lecture; previous speakers include Bishop Steven Croft, Bishop David Walker, Bishop Pete Wilcox, Bishop Paul Bayes, Canon Lucy Winkett and Ann Morisy.
