Yesterday evening, Thursday 6 March, I had the pleasure of attending the second Annual Lecture organised by the University of Cumbria Chaplaincy in the Learning Gateway Lecture Theatre at Fusehill Street, Carlisle. The Dean of Westminster, The Very Reverend Dr John R Hall gave a fascinating talk entitled ‘The Christian faith at the Heart of the Nation’.
John Hall explained the development of Westminster Abbey over the centuries and showed pictures of significant ceremonies, events and services that have taken place there. He went on to explain the importance of teaching our young people an understanding of other faiths so that they have a better understanding of the importance of where the Christian faith fits in our lives and that the Church should be fundamental part of our society and an inspiration in our communities.
