NT Wright and the Anglicans – in Toronto – late November

Although known to pick up a guitar and play, this is not the name of a new band of singing theologians led by Tom Wright.

The good Bishop of Durham is coming to Toronto to be one of the speakers at the Anglican Communion Institute’s conference, Anglicanism – A Gift in Christ. He will be joined at this event by Edith Humphrey, Jo Bailey Wells, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon and Wycliffe College Principal, George Sumner.

If you’re an Anglican, or appreciate the power of Anglican life and liturgy, this will be a very good conference to attend.

Imbi and I quickly produced the above video to tell a bit of the story. Note the Fearon and Wright sections are from her upcoming documentary which I might title “How Do We Train Mission-Shaped Leaders for the 21st Century” but she has not yet given it a name. Interviews in the documentary include new Fresh Expressions leader, Bishop Graham Cray, Bishop NT Wright, Archbishop Fearon, Fresh Expressions Team Members Pete and Kath Atkins, Pete Pillinger and many others. I think it will be very, very good. It should be ready for viewing early in the New Year. More on that later.

  1. Ha… allright for you Canadians… but that’s during our Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. … 😉

    I wonder if I could escape the Turkey and table talk for this….

  2. Susan,
    The funny thing was that the folks who set the dates and arranged this are all Americans. In fact, the only Canadian speaking is Edith Humphrey – and she lives in Pittburgh. Go figure.
