EBOR Lecture: Crossing Places
October 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE but booking with eventbrite is required
Julie Nicholson’s Ebor lecture will draw on personal narrative and experience in exploring the choices people make about how to live and thrive in the shadow of death and trauma, including the complex area of forgiveness.
Julie is a writer and an ordained priest in the Anglican Church. Following the sudden death of her eldest daughter in the London bombings on the 7 July 2005, Julie resigned her post as a parish priest to attend to the demands of bereavement and family support in what was a high-profile terrorist attack.
The year 2018 marks the centenary of the ending of World War I. Communities and individuals across the world will be involved in commemorating and remembering those who fought, survived or died in this war. As part of this commemoration our 2018 series of the Ebor lectures, ‘Peace and Reconciliation’ offers a range of speakers who will talk about various themes, issues and examples, both past and present, concerned with building peace and promoting reconciliation in a variety of contexts. It is hoped that this series will provide a further understanding of how the healing of communities and progress along the peace-building road can be achieved. As Mahatma Gandhi said in his teaching on peace: ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world.’
