The Reverend Canon Angela Tilby to speak on Work Wealth and Human Flourishing
The Reverend Canon Angela Tilby (pictured) will present this year’s Provost Derek Hole Annual Lecture which will take place in the Rattray Lecture Theatre on Thursday 3 December at 5.30pm and is free and open to the public.
Her lecture, ‘Work, Wealth and Human Flourishing' will discuss how the Christian spiritual tradition has shaped attitudes and values in very diverse ways, which is seen reflected in rival political and economic systems. Angela Tilby suggests that this dynamic and open tradition still has resources to help us shape our society towards the ‘good’ life.
Tilby is an author and Anglican priest, and Diocesan Canon at Christ Church, Oxford. Before ordination, she spent 22 years as a producer within the BBC's Religious Department and has made regular appearances on television and radio, including ‘Thought for the Day’ on BBC Radio 4.
At a service at St Paul's in 2004 recognising 10 years of women in the priesthood, Tilby's sermon stated that “Women priests have not unhinged the church”. In an opinion piece in The Times, journalist Anthony Howard CBE stated that the sermon showed that Tilby “is the equal of, if not the superior to, most men currently sitting on the episcopal bench”.
A drinks reception will follow at 6.30pm in the City Lounge on the first floor of the Charles Wilson building. The event is free and open to all.
