Tim Stanley on religion and politics

Tomorrow evening, Wednesday 27th November, we will be hosting our third Pembury lecture in a special series celebrating the canonisation of Saint John Henry Newman and ten years since the announcement of the Ordinariate. Mass at 7pm, refreshments at 7:30pm and lecture at 8pm.

Our third guest speaker is Tim Stanley, religious affairs correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, contributor to Radio 4’s ‘thought of the day’ and regular guest on Newsnight and various other political programmes. Much more impressive, of course, is the fact that he is a member of the congregation, and an altar server, at St. Anselm’s church in Pembury!

The lecture series follows the Lord’s prayer thematically. Being third Tim was handed the title ‘thy kingdom come’ and he intends to use this phrase to launch a reflection on “politics, the general election and the Kingdom of God.” It should certain garner a lively debate. Do come along and bring friends with you. And if you can contribute some cake or biscuits- they are always gratefully received.

You can listen to the previous two lectures in the series by visiting this link. We really have been blessed with wonderful speakers and I am very grateful to each and every one of them. In addition to those listed below we have a bonus lecture to be delivered on June 17th when Edmund Adamus will deliver a final lecture.
