News from HCC October 2011

Below are details on the following:

Is There a Future for Multiculturalism?
Thursday 20 October 2011 (6.30-8.00pm)
London School of Economics, Old Theatre, Old Building,Houghton Street, WC2A 2AE

Recent years have seen politicians and commentators of all stripes lining up to condemn multiculturalism. Once political orthodoxy, it is now almost a by-word for segregation, exclusion and security threats. David Cameron has claimed that it has hindered rather than helped social cohesion. This debate, chaired by Jane Little, asks whether we are right to bury "state multiculturalism", having once praised it so energetically. Is it a good idea that's had its day, or even a bad idea that should never have had a day at all? Or is it still the best, most just way we can hope to deal with the "deep diversity" that marks British society? Timed to co-incide with the launch of a new report from think tank Theos, entitled Multiculturalism: A Christian Retrieval , with panellists Dr Jonathan Chaplin, the report’s author, Claire Fox, Professor Tariq Modood Dr Jenny Taylor, this promises to be a lively debate on one of the most contentious issues of our time.

This event has been organised by Elizabeth Hunter, Director of Theos, in association with the LSE Forum on Religion.

Doctors, Clergy and the Troubled Soul: Two Professions, One Vocation?
A conference open to doctors and clergy
Held Jointly by The Guild of Health and The Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group of The Royal College of Psychiatrists in Association with The Royal Society of Medicine
2 November 2011 (9.00am – 5.00pm)
St. Marylebone Parish Church, London NW1 5LT
Fee: £50 (for clergy)
Many doctors and clergy of all faiths are originally drawn to their work by a lively sense of vocation. But how do our high expectations stand the test of time? In this conference we will explore the meaning of vocation for both professions, and the impact of the realities of professional life, not least when we find ourselves trying to help those for whom cure is no longer a possibility. Through the inter-disciplinary nature of the day and the thoughtful exchange of experiences, the aim will be to help members of both professions see their own roles more clearly, as well as to facilitate collaborative working.
The Programme Organisers and Co-Chairs are the Revd Chris MacKenna, Clinical Director, The Guild of Health and Director, St. Marylebone Healing and Counselling Centre; and Dr Andrew Powell, Founding Chair, Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Spirituality and Psychiatry Special Interest Group.
The speakers include: Dr Mariette Grant, General Practitioner; Revd. Richard Coles, Parish Priest and Broadcaster; Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, New North London Synagogue; Dr Sarah Eagger, Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry, Imperial College London; Dr Nick Read, Consultant Gastroenterologist and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist; Sister Frances Dominica, Order of All Saints Sisters of the Poor, Nurse and Palliative Care Specialist; Ms Julia Head, Bishop John Robinson Fellow in Pastoral Theology and Mental Health, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust; and Revd. Dr Nigel Copsey, Health Service Chaplain, Spiritual Care Co-ordinator and Team Leader, East London and the City Mental Health NHS Trust.

St John’s College Advent Book for 2011
These Words of Mine…contains a series of readings covering the Advent period. The meditations and prayers have been written by staff and students at St John’s College. As you are well aware, the season of Advent is a busy time in the life of the church. Clergy and Readers often find themselves right at the centre of this whirlwind of activity. Our prayer is that the Advent book we produce will bless those who read it by providing a framework for them to stop, think & pray.
