This year’s Scottish Episcopal Institute (SEI) Lecture, the fifth in the annual series, will be given by Dr Cathy Ross on Thursday 29 October 2020. Her topic for the lecture is ‘Mission and Formation in a Time of Lament and Hope: Reflections after Covid-19’.
The lecture was to have been held at New College in Edinburgh, but has since been moved to an online meeting via Zoom, with a live Q&A.
Dr Cathy Ross is the Director of Pioneer Mission Leadership Training Centre for CMS (Church Mission Society); and Canon Theologian at Leicester Cathedral. Dr Ross, one of the world’s leading missiologists, is a prolific writer. Her published works include Women with a Mission, Mission in the 21st Century, and Pioneering Spirituality.
Commenting on the announcement the Rev Canon Dr Anne Tomlinson, Principal of the SEI said: “the SEI is deeply grateful to Dr Ross for being willing to deliver the 2020 Lecture on-line rather than cancel. The upside of this is that a much wider audience will be able to participate in the event than previously.”
Further details about the 2020 Lecture will follow ahead of October.
