    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.

Our Secular Age Tag

Christians do not have a monopoly on seeing what's wrong with the world. This talk examines three secular sin labels as a diagnosis of the problem. Each adds something significant to our understanding of why everything is so bent out of shape. While these labels are useful, they are inadequate when compared to the better diagnosis found in the Bible.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/17154512/andrew-fellows-is-sin-plausible-in-the-modern-world.mp3[/embed]...

If you could live forever, would you want to? At first glance it seems an easy question. But wouldn’t such an existence become utterly boring? Assuming one would desire immortality, are there any reasons to hope for it? In this Round Church Talk, Jon Thompson draws on philosophy, poetry and art to explore these questions and possible answers.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12165040/jon-thompson-who-wants-to-live-forever.mp3[/embed]...

Bertrand Russell comments that 'evidence is not enough' for the existence of God. This talk argues that the 'hiddenness' of God is not something to be apologetically defended. In terms of who God is, He must hide in order to be true to Himself.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12164424/andrew-fellows-not-enough-evidence-why-god-hides.mp3[/embed]...

The 'Anxiety of Modernity' isn't a far-off, abstract concept. Rather, it is something that each of us deals with on a daily basis. Andrew Fellows addresses the topic of Modernity and discusses what the Bible says about how we should approach life in the modern age.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12163040/andrew-fellows-living-in-the-machine-the-anxiety-of-modernity.mp3[/embed]...
