Confessions of a Recovering Fundamentalist

4th March - 6th March 2022

Course: Confessions of a Recovering Fundamentalist with Keith Ward
Friday 4th to Sunday 6th March


Can theology be expounded almost entirely in jokes? This short course is an attempt to do so. But it is also a glimpse into how one person recovered from fundamentalism and found a different, more positive spirituality within the Christian faith that makes moral and intellectual sense.


Includes access to the  John Shelby Spong Lecture on Saturday 5th March from 3pm to 5pm: A Tribute to John Shelby Spong with Keith Ward, Peter Francis and you. Click here for details about this lecture.
