Luther King Centre, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, and The Centre for Theology and Justice welcomed Anthony Reddie who delivered the 2021 David Goodbourn Lecture on Tuesday 11th May.
The lecture, built upon research undertaken for the Council for World Mission's 'Legacies of Slavery' project, outlined the necessity of deconstructing the problematic history of Christian mission and its relationship to slavery and colonialism, in order to effect a more prophetic and radical proclamation of the Christian faith in contemporary Britain.
We were delighted to welcome Anthony Reddie to give our Annual David Goodbourn Lecture. Anthony is Director of the Oxford Centre for Religion and Culture, and a leading scholar in the practice of Black Theology with grassroots communities. The significance of his writings and research is recognised internationally.
David Goodbourn, who the annual lecture honours, was General Secretary of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, and President of Luther King House, Manchester.
The lecture live-streamed on Zoom and a recording is now available.
The Centre for Theology and Justice brings together a number of organisations involved in justice issues, including Luther King Centre, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, Church Action on Poverty, and Christian Aid.
