Description

The World Congress of Faiths Younghusband Lecture 2017

REHUMANISING PUBLIC SPACE?

Can a renewed interest in religion, belief and spirituality contribute to political and civic regeneration? Are we living in a postsecular society or an age of radical new ethics? And where is the modern ‘public square’?

Montagu Centre, Thursday 16 November 2017

6.30pm: Registration and refreshments

7.00pm to 8.30pm: Lecture and responses

Professor Chris Baker will speak on the theme and Rabbi Professor Tony Bayfield will respond. In the interests of maximising dialogue there will be buzz groups for sharing views, and a plenary discussion.


Professor Chris Baker is William Temple Professor of Religion and Public Life at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Director of Research for the William Temple Foundation
Rabbi Tony Bayfield CBE, DD (Cantuar) is Professor of Jewish Theology and Thought at Leo Baeck College



There will be a retiring collection in support of the World Congress of Faiths, which works to increase spiritual understanding through cooperation and dialogue for the benefit of society.
