About Providence, Divine Action and the Church


In this blog, Terry J. Wright posts thoughts and shares research on the Christian doctrine of providence. This doctrine testifies to God’s provision for all things through creation’s high priest, the man Christ Jesus. However, the precise meaning and manner of this provision is a perpetually open question, and this blog is a forum for discussion of the many issues relating to providence and the place of the Church within God’s action.

The Holy Spirit in the World Today

Here’s notice of a forthcoming conference:


The Christian story offers a magnificent, rich and deep account of God, the world and our place in it. And yet over the past century or so, that story has ceased to capture the imagination of many in our culture.  How might the gospel ignite the imagination of the fast-changing culture of the twenty-first century, and what role does the Holy Spirit play in this?

This two-day conference, based in St Mellitus College’s new London centre will explore these connections between pneumatology and missiology with the help of both established and emerging theological voices. It will blend worship, prayer and deep thinking around these issues, and is intended for all with an interest in theology and its significance in the contemporary world.

It’s a little expensive, but you do get to see some quality speakers. I presume that there’ll be workshops and the like as well. And I further presume that at least some of the St Mellitus Staff – including Christ Illing and Lincoln Harvey – will also be taking part.
