CATALYST LIVE 2016
St Martin in the Bull Ring
Wednesday 16 November
Thursday 17 November
Very excited to be invited to share some poetry at Catalyst 2016. This is a big deal for me. I performed at a BMS Conference in Cardiff back around 2002 (with my songwriting buddy Sam Hill) and I am rather flattered that they deem me worthy enough to be involved in these two major days.
The days are filled with a vibrant programme of short talks on mission form some heavy hitting practitioners. I am particularly delighted to be on stage just before Vinoth Ramachandra the Sri Lankan theologian, author and speaker. I look forward to gaining much more from the Conferences than I will give.
I have between 10 and 20 minutes to use my spoken word, rhyming lyrical sermonettes to somehow contribute to the conversation. I am scanning my old books and thinking of writing fresh things. Incarnation and Grace, two of my very favourite theological ideas with emphasis on my writing on those subjects in a Belfast context, are the themes I am working on at the moment.
