Events for October 2010

Interested in hearing more conversation between Stanley Hauerwas and Luke Bretherton? Our sister publisher SCM Press is running an event to mark the publication of Stanley Hauerwas's Hannah's Child. He will talk further with Luke about his life and work, and will also be joined by the theologian John Milbank, a key mover in the radical orthodoxy movement.

The event will take place on  Monday October 18, at the Great Hall of King's College London's Strand Campus.

Spaces are limited, so be sure to RSVP to Anita before Friday October 8 by emailing or calling 020 7776 7550. The event is free, and will run from 5:30pm until 7pm.

A country-wide photography competition aimed at highlighting the positive impact that different faiths can have on communities has been launched by Congregational & General insurers. Faith through a lens is open to all photographers whose images convey the importance of faith within their local area.

The winning entries will receive high quality, professional photographic equipment to be donated to their chosen charity, faith or community group. Images will be judged on their relevance, emotional connection, creativity and originality, visual impact and composition by a panel including the David Cornick, the general secretary of Churches Together in England, the photographer Don McCullin, and Paresh Solanki from Inter Faith Week.
The competition will run until 31 October, and will be followed by an awards ceremony at Whitechapel Gallery, London, during this year's Interfaith Week in November.

Entries can be uploaded here or for more details on how to enter via post, please call 0113 243 1117.

Apple is a London-based discussion series on theology and technology from the people who created the emergent group Vaux.  It's probably too late to make their September talk on 'Is Institutional Religion An Out-Moded Technology?' but we think it'll be worth keeping an eye on what they might be up to in October.

There's a blog, or social media users can find them on Facebook or by following @appleTMP on Twitter. Past events have included 'Is the city a machine for the making of gods?' and 'Despite appearances, some things are real.'
