Events for November

Events.jpgAmid struggling global economies, political transition and - according to the Mayan calendar - the end of world, the Christian season of Advent can be seen as a sign of new arrivals, a world re-imagined, cultures disrupted and paradigms shifted. To celebrate the season comes Adventurous, a new one-day festival of ideas, artistry, spoken word and live music imagining how we got to where we are, and how we might move towards a new place - all through three prisms: faith, the ecology and the economy.

The event is hosted jointly by Greenbelt and Union Chapel (pictured), drawing on a number of creative partners, each with an interest in conspiring hopefully towards a better tomorrow. It will take place on December 1.

Contributors will include the missiologist Mike Frost, the economist and campaigner Ann Pettifor, theologian Ann Morisy, journalist Abdul Rehman Malik and activist Ruth Valerio. Evening music will be provided by the performance poet Harry Baker, Iain Archer and Hope & Social.
Tickets will cost £32 for a combined day/evening ticket. See adventurous.me.uk for details including a preview of the day's programme.

The Autumn education series at Trafalgar Square's St Martins-in-the-Fields continues in November with talks from Richard Holloway, Paula Gooder and John Bell. The series, which we mentioned last month, is entitled His Story, Our Story: Jesus and the storyteller's art, and looks at how Jesus used narrative to find truth beyond the literal and the formulaic

On Monday November 5 Richard Holloway looks at 'The Story that Oppresses' and he is followed on November 12 by Paula Gooder with 'The Story that Liberates'. John Bell finishes the series on November 26 with 'The Story and the Song.'

The lectures take place from 7.00-8.30pm. They are free and no booking is required, though there will be a retiring collection to cover some of the costs of the programme. See smitf.org for details.

Apologies for the London focus on this page of late. If you know of any events outside the capital that would appeal to Third Way readers, do please send details to via email to editorial@thirdway.org.uk. Let us know where and when the event is taking place, how much it costs, and where we can investigate further details.  Much obliged.
