Lecture: Is there a rationale for the Anglican Communion?
Professor Ephraim Radner gives this opening lecture for the colloquium ‘God Wills Fellowship’: Lambeth Conference 1920 and the Ecumenical Vocation of Anglicanism.
In partnership with Lambeth Palace, the Living Church Foundation, Communion Partners, and Virginia Theological Seminary, Westminster Abbey is pleased to host this distinguished lecture, given by one of international Anglicanism's best-known contemporary theological voices.
Meeting in the aftermath of the Great War, the bishops who convened at Lambeth Palace in 1920 felt themselves ‘drawn by a Power greater than themselves to a general agreement’ regarding a new approach to Christian unity.
In preparation for the next Lambeth Conference, the colloquium will review the legacy of 1920 and ask what the ecumenical vocation of Anglicanism might be today. Ephraim Radner's lecture will prepare the ground, offering a theological rationale for the Anglican Communion itself.
Members of the public are welcome to book for this lecture alone if they do not wish to attend the rest of the Colloquium.
