A presentation and discussion of the Stolen Lives project

at The Lindsey Suite, Staff House, University of Hull, Cottingham Rd, Hull, HU6 7RX

Stolen Lives is a new thought -provoking creative project which looks at the issues of historical and contemporary slavery through a combination of music, songs, words, images, film and animation. It aims to raise awareness of modern -day slavery, human trafficking and trans-global child labour issues, thereby helping to inform today’s (and tomorrow’s) campaigners by providing them with an engaging vibrant tool to help the fight against modern slavery.

Stolen Lives is a project of the Wilberforce Institute, University of Hull, led by Prof. John Oldfield in collaboration with Paul Field, a contemporary singer/song writer and is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Follow-on funding for Impact and Engagement.

His spiritual understanding is influenced by his research into the Shaker community. The Shakers have a song 'Simple Gifts' - 'till by turning, turning, we come right'. He believes we all have spiritual gifts which are given to us to be shared. Thomas says "You can turn a gift around that is a bad gift, or a backward gift, to be a forward gift. The Shakers had that sense." This workshop is a rare opportunity to learn from the spiritual insights of a leading American Quaker.

Open Friday Night Service

Hull Reform Synagogue, Great Gutter Lane West, Willerby HU10 6DP
Ian Sugarman writes "What makes this Service different from the normal Friday Night service is the running commentary from those leading the Service explaining the nature of the prayers being recited, their background, origin and the traditional rituals being observed. After the Service, and following the Brachot over the wine and bread, there will be the kiddush with a wide range of Jewish-style foods. There will also be opportunity to look around the synagogue, talk to those members present and examine the Ark, Scrolls and other artefacts."

"Ordinary Christology: Answers from the Pews"

Graduate School, University of Hull Cottingham Road
Hull & District Theological Society
A talk by Dr Ann Christie (Senior Lecturer in Theology & Ministry, York St John University)
Jesus once asked his disciples, ‘Who do you say that I am?’ Christology – the question of who Jesus is and what he has done for us – has been debated ever since by generations of theologians. But how do Christians who have received little or no theological education answer Jesus’s question? Ann Christie’s research has focussed on mapping and critically analysing ‘ordinary Christology’, using social-scientific methods, and her findings have recently been published in a monograph of the same name by Ashgate. Dr Christie, a former biochemist, is Senior Lecturer in Theology and Ministry at York St John University.
