Paul Thompson

 

21st Century Ethics – Challenges and Uncertainties’

 

After a curacy in Liverpool, Canon Paul served as a Chaplain in the Army. He has been Senior Chaplain at Epsom College for the last 18 years, and has been teaching A-level religious studies during that time.  He plays his full part in the activities of the College, including sport.  He is an ardent supporter of Liverpool Football Club.  He was recently appointed a Canon of Guildford Cathedral and plays his full part in the services there.

 

This evening he will consider the whole aspect and range of religious ethics but also make reference to Greek philosophy and more contemporary thought. Is it possible to have one defining ethic as a Christian today?

'The Atoning Death of Christ'

 

This session of Second Thoughts for the eveninbg of Palm Sunday will be a reflective preparation for Holy Week.  Central to all Christian belief is the suffering and death of Jesus on the Cross.  This is the fact of what is call 'The Atonement'.  What Jesus did re-opened the way to God.  That work, valid for all in every age, past, present and future, has remained at the heart of the Gospel.  

 

But how did that far off death on the Cross make any difference ?  What was it that happened on that first Good Friday that has changed  the lives and hopes of so many men, women and children throughout our world?   It is this question that Adrian will seek to answer during this session.

 

Hymns and readings will illustrate what he has to say.
