|It's only in Jesus that we see man united...|
God and Sport
Holy Trinity Brompton
Saturday, 28 April 2012
9.00 am - 5.00 pm
What's the Christian response to the Olympics hitting London in 2012? Is sport a worldly distraction' in the race for salvation or does it offer us a way to celebrate God's good creation?
St Mellitus College are running the God & Sport Conference, which will give you a great opportunity to join with other Christians to hear theologians examine sport in light of their Christian faith. And don’t worry, it won’t all be sitting down and listening - we’ll make sure there’s plenty of time to engage with their thoughts (and lunchtime football anyone…?)
And for all those asking "who will be speaking?", among others, our speakers will include:
Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford
Ed Smith, Cricketer, Journalist and Author of 'What Sport Tells Us About Life'
Graham Tomlin, St Mellitus College
Dominic Erdozain, King's College, London
Andy Emerton, St Mellitus College
Andrew Parker, University of Gloucester
Lincoln Harvey, St Mellitus College
Ashley Null, Humboldt University Berlin
This should be a good day. Hopefully one of the speakers will comment on how brilliant are Manchester United.
