Lent Lecture: Notes on Blindness
Film showing 5.30 pm; Panel Discussion 7.30 pm.
Our Lent Lecture this year will take place on Friday 8th March at 7.30 pm. It will be a panel discussion about the extraordinary 2016 film Notes on Blindness, which explores the gradual loss of sight experienced by theologian John Hull, and the theological memoir he wrote.
We will be joined by John’s wife, Marilyn Hull, and by those who were involved in the creation of the film. The film will be shown earlier on in the evening at St Benet’s for those who want to see it before the lecture. Please put this date in your diaries.
If you wish to know more about the ideas the film explores in preparation for the lecture, the film is available at the moment on Netflix. You can also buy the memoir, which goes by the same title, “Notes of Blindness.”
Study Day with the Bishop of Fulham: Growing through the Eucharist
All Hallows’, Gospel Oak: Saturday 30th March, 11.00 am
At the heart of our life as Christians is the experience of eating and drinking at Mass so that we may receive the risen power of Christ. Through this Sacrament we are invited by him to come and receive life from him. In this study day focussed on the Eucharist, we will explore with the Bishop and Fr Philip Barnes how the Mass provides us with a pattern of living that makes us effective witnesses.
• Mass with a homily from the Bishop at 11am
• lunch provided
• Key note address and group discussion
• closing worship at 2.30pm
