The Church and the Camp

Uncategorized l and tagged , , l

Canon Dr Angus Ritchie, Director of the Contextual Theology Centre, has recently contributed to the ResPublica blog about the Occupy camp at St Paul’s.

The post is one of a number of recent attempts by church leaders to engage seriously and constructively with the substantive issues raised by the presence of a disparate group of protesters outside the cathedral.

Another contribution worth reading is by Graham Tomlin, who argues that repentance needs to be central to the way forward.

And some of the other articles which have added value to the debate are:

The City’s ethics don’t bear scrutiny, Independent leader

Sitting on a fault line at St Paul’s, Giles Fraser

The Real Battle of St Paul’s Cathedral: The Occupy Movement and Millennial Politics, Luke Bretherton

Occupy London are true followers of Jesus, even if they despise religion, Terry Eagleton

What is the role of the Church in all of this?, Caroline Julian

Outside St Paul’s Cathedral sits a mess, but it’s a holy mess, Alan Green

As always, linking to external blogs and articles does not necessarily imply endorsement by the Contextual Theology Centre of the views expressed.
