The Cathedral’s inaugural theological symposium on the 18th of August was attended by over 100 people, and received overwhelmingly good feedback. The event, styled around the 15-20 minute TED talk event, saw six theologians deliver compelling and thought-provoking vignettes on a variety of topics, as a way of equipping the Church with the tools of theological reflection.
Rev Dr Joe McGarry, organiser of the event and one of the speakers, says that “the purpose was to start a conversation, and in starting that conversation, show that it’s an important conversation to have. I think that we achieved both of these.” Joe states that there was such a positive response to the event, that it will definitely be back next year.
If you missed the event, you’ll be able to check out videos of the speakers on YouTube soon. We’ll let you know when they’re available.
