The title of this year’s St Paul’s Forum is How to Change the World.
Last year’s St Paul’s Forum, The Case For God, was fascinating and thought-provoking, and established, for this blogger at least, the St Paul’s Forum as “Must Go” events.
It’s worth arriving early to get a good seat near the front. And bring your wallet. Admission to the forum is free, but if last year is anything to go by, the selection of books by the speakers that will be on sale is just too tempting to resist!
I won’t quote too extensively from the St Paul’s Forum website, where you can find details of all the talks and other Forum events, but just as a taster:
Gandhi famously said we must be the change we want to see in the world, but in practice it can feel overwhelming. What can we do?
At St Paul’s Cathedral this autumn, ten extraordinary people will debate how to make the world – and our lives – better: more compassionate, more peaceful, freer.
The debates will be chaired by Canon Mark Oakley and each evening will include plenty of time for questions from the audience.
All the events are in St Paul’s Cathedral, last for 90 minutes, are free and unticketed.
