Join us as we explore the role and significance of light in the Bible. 

From the creation account in Genesis, where God says, “Let there be light” to the declaration of Jesus “I am the light of the world”, the Bible is full of references to light. This talk will draw on a number of biblical texts to explore the importance of light in Christian understanding, both cosmologically and as a root metaphor for key theological ideas.

When | Wednesday 2 November, 7.30 - 9pm 

Where | Alban Room and Online via Zoom Webinar

Speaker | Dr Hilary Marlow, Canon Environmentalist

Cost | £10 (£6 students)
