Reformation 500

To mark the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, a city-wide church service was held to celebrate the truth of the gospel. Martin Luther's 95 Theses (1517) lit the fire of the Reformation and led to the reformation of the Roman Catholic Church, the reviving of essential Christian doctrines, and the revolutionising of the landscape of Europe. Speakers: Andrew Fellows, Director of Christian Heritage Cambridge (4:55) and Dr Jonathan Linebaugh, Lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge (33:05)

I'm Not Me: Shame and the Self with St. Paul
Dr Jonathan Linebaugh
Is there any good news for the suffering self? For Brené Brown, Houston based "vulnerability researcher" and TED Talk phenomenon, empathy--vulnerability meeting vulnerability--is the only antidote. But Bob Dylan finds something else to say: "Thank God, I'm not me." This is the route I'll take, both the "thank God" as this talk will draw on the resources of Christian theology and the "I'm not me" as I'll suggest that "I" am not the final answer to the question "Who am I?".

Nature and Grace in the work of Terrence Malick: His Films Then and Now

Plato's Beard and Occam's Razor: Some New Arguments for Theism
Dr James Orr
Philosophers have always trod a thin line between multiplying theoretical entities for explanatory purposes (growing Plato's Beard) and ensuring that the explanation is theoretically parsimonious (shaving the Occam's Razor). Many attempts by contemporary analytic philosophers to address the problems of the so-called 'M-Words'- morality, modality, metaphyics, mathematics, meaning- tend to breach one of these two constraints. In this lecture, James Orr, McDonald Postdoctoral Fellow at Christ Church Oxford, m
