    Making Sin Plausible to Atheists and Secularists

    7:00 pmAndrew Fellows | The Round Church, Cambridge

    In sharing the gospel, we sometimes forget that the message of sin against a holy God is totally implausible to many people today. As the reality of sin is integral to the meaning of the gospel of forgiveness, we are required to make sense of it. While exploring the barriers to accepting sin, this talk looks at how we can expose its reality.

Meic Pearse Portrait
Becoming Modern: Recreating Past, Present and Future

Modernisation has given rise to ideologies that have had profound consequences for our sense of identity: secular metanarratives that claim meta-explanatory powers. It has also transformed what the past means for ordinary people – with consequences for how we view the present and the future. In this lecture, Professor Meic Pearse explores some of the more important challenges this presents for a coherent, Christian view of the world, and of ourselves.

Transhumanism: Eternity in Their Hearts and a Chip in Their Shoulder

If the mortal coil were updated to fibre optic cable, would we have to shuffle off it? Welcome to Gnosticism 2.0, where the positively retro fear of mortality and disdain for physical bodies collides with techno-determinism. In this Round Church Talk, Florence Gildea explores the religiosity of transhumanism and explains why Jesus will probably not be ‘coming with the iCloud’.

Reformation 500: The Truth of the Gospel

To mark the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, a city-wide church service was held to celebrate the truth of the gospel. Martin Luther’s 95 Theses (1517) lit the fire of the Reformation and led to the reformation of the Roman Catholic Church, the reviving of essential Christian doctrines and the revolutionising of the landscape of Europe. Speakers: Andrew Fellows, Director of Christian Heritage Cambridge (4:55), Dr Jonathan Linebaugh, Lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge (33:05), and Steve Midgley, Senior Minister of Christ Church Cambridge.

I’m Not Me: Shame and the Self with St Paul

Is there any good news for the suffering self? For Brené Brown, Houston based ‘vulnerability researcher’ and TED Talk phenomenon, empathy – vulnerability meeting vulnerability – is the only antidote. But Bob Dylan finds something else to say: ‘Thank God, I’m not me.’ This is the route I’ll take, both the ‘thank God’ as this talk will draw on the resources of Christian theology and the ‘I’m not me’ as I’ll suggest that ‘I’ am not the final answer to the question ‘Who am I?’

What’s the Point of the University?

The lives of universities are inherently directed towards that which is considered valuable. Currently, issues of purpose, justification, funding, and freedom flare up regularly and point toward questions of ultimate value. Contemporary accounts of human life and thought, however, struggle to answer these questions satisfactorily. Alden McCray examines what a Christian account of the intellectual life, human flourishing and the world might offer to the current discussions about the life of the university.

The year 2017 marks the 500 year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. When the integrity of Christianity becomes eroded and compromised, is a Reformation again inevitable?

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.

Nature and Grace in the Work of Terrence Malick

The American filmmaker Terrence Malick (known for A Thin Red Line, Tree of Life and Knight of Cups) is one of cinema’s most mysterious figures. Notably camera shy and often called a recluse, Malick has released only seven films since his 1973 debut – five of them after a twenty-year hiatus. Philip Johnston (L’Abri Fellowship Hampshire) traces how Malick’s canon reveals a compelling ideological trajectory from nihilism to a more Christian sensibility.

Me, My ‘Selfie’, and I

Humans have always acted out of self-interest. However, in the modern period this has shifted to Narcissism. The modern person tends to use reality as a mirror with everything reflected back to the self. But will this lead to a ‘sickness unto death’ like Narcissus in the ancient Greek myth?

Although he is primarily remembered as the creator of Narnia, C. S. Lewis’s first love was poetry and his first ambition, prior to his conversion, was to be a Poet.

Transforming Capitalism from Within

At a time of increasing turbulence in global finance markets, Capitalism is under growing scrutiny. There is widespread discontent with corporate structures associated with manipulation of markets, widening pay differentials, investor short-termism and unfair treatment of small suppliers. So how can Capitalism be transformed from a Christian perspective without throwing out the ‘baby’ of free enterprise with the ‘bathwater’ of these systemic malfunctions?

From Reformation to Revival: The 18th-Century Evangelicals – Revival Rivalries

Cambridge Saturday School of Theology 2011. The church was cold and lifeless, infected with worldliness and a lack of vigor. Love for Christ and the Bible was at a low ebb. That is until John Wesley and George Whitefield set the world on fire and revived the nation’s spiritual life with passionate and powerful gospel preaching! Or did they? Was all as rosy as it seemed within the Evangelical movement? Or did revival rivalries almost tear it apart from within?
