This Thursday (31 May 2007) there is a unique chance to engage with Professor Deirdre Good about why the church may - ironically - be overlooking Jesus and the Gospel message of inclusive community in its increasingly anxious quest for 'family values'.

The event, sponsored by Ekklesia, and chaired by Fr Kevin Scully, will take place at St Ethelburga's Centre for Reconciliation and Peace - a couple of minutes' walk away from Liverpool Street Station, from 11 AM - Midday. Refreshments, and interviews afterwards. Full details here: http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/node/5297.

Dr Good is Professor of New Testament at General Seminary in New York, USA. Her new book Jesus' Family Values is available now. It argues that Jesus replaced his family of origin with differently configured communities and households.

All welcome. Please pass this on to people you know in the London (UK) vicinity, if you see this before the event.
