A monthly, reflective conversation
In October we will be joined by Jayme Reaves.
Jayme Reaves is public theologian, who alongside her role at Sarum College in Salisbury, works with congregations, organisations, communities, and individuals to reflect on both developing theologies on specific public issues and on theology’s public impact. Her book Safeguarding the Stranger: An Abrahamic Theology and Ethic of Protective Hospitality looks at the theology and ethic of providing sanctuary to the threatened other, and how the Western Christian theology and practice of hospitality can be enriched by the recovery of honour and etiquettes related to hospitality as seen in the Jewish and Islamic traditions.
Earlier in 2021, 'When Did we see you Naked?: Jesus as a Victim Sexual Abuse' a book edited by Jayme was published. This collection of essayspresents the arguments for reading Christ as an abuse victim, as well as exploring how the position might be critiqued, and what implications and applications it might offer to the Church. In our conversation with Jayme we will be engaging with some of the key themes from this collection of essays and so we ask that you are sensitive both to your own pastoral situation and those of others throughout this event.
