    A Costly Silence: Northern Ireland, the Church and the Culture of Abortion

     

    a Conversation with Dawn McAvoy and Philippa Taylor
    on
    Friday, 7th of August, 8pm BST (3pm EDT)

     

    Until this Spring, Northern Ireland was the safest place in the UK for unborn children. Its life-affirming laws and culture have ensured that over 100,000 people are now alive who otherwise would not be. This tradition of protecting life has now been upended by a Westminster parliament determined to foist radical abortion law on the province. This webinar will tell the story of this unprecedented policy intervention and the deeper cultural changes which have made it possible. In conversation with Dawn McAvoy (Both Lives Matter) and Philippa Taylor (CARE), we’ll trace how the culture of abortion became normative in the UK, ask where the Church has been as the rights of the weakest have been undermined, and explore how the Christian faith equips us to think and act at such a time as this.

Albert Camus portrait

Christian Heritage Webinar: Camus, Christ and COVID-19


‘The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the most eminent people of past centuries.’
– René Descartes*

Reading great literature is like peering into a limitless reservoir of human experience, unlocking with each turn of the page ideas and perspectives that lend clarity to our own thoughts. We read to make sense of ourselves and others and, especially during a moment of global uncertainty and pandemic, we read to make sense of our unpredictable world.

In this Christian Heritage webinar, Dr Chris Watkin (Senior Lecturer, French Studies, Monash University) and Kevin Moss (PhD Candidate in Intellectual History) discuss what we can learn from Albert Camus’ seminal work, The Plague, and especially how these lessons coalesce with a Christian worldview.
