‘Still Tarrying: On Faith, Hope and Encounter in a Troubled World’ with Dr Selina Stone

Thu 30 May 2024 Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

We're delighted to be hosting a special summer term of Keene Lectures at the Cathedral this year with an exciting line-up of guest speakers. 

This year we have a series of five lectures in the summer term, where we have asked theologians and university lecturers to talk about a subject of their choice, something that they feel passionate about.

Tarrying invites us to wait and anticipate the action of God and our own, in light of struggle, pain and longing. How does this equip us in a time of increasing inequality, war and violence? In this talk, Dr Selina Stone will expand on themes explored in her Lent book, and the lessons that might support us as we walk with Christ and one another, beyond this season. 

Dr Selina Stone is a theologian and educator working at Durham University. She is the author of Tarry Awhile: Wisdom from Black Spirituality for People of Faith, the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book 2024 and her first academic monograph The Spirit and the Body: Towards a Womanist Pentecostal Social Justice Ethic (Brill, 2023). She is a preacher, host of the Sunday School for Misfits podcast and a proud Brummie.
