Half a million people are going without adequate food in Britain. The End Hunger Fast initiative, which is being backed by Ekklesia and others, is inviting people across the country to join in with a national day of fasting on 4th April 2014.
Ekklesia is very pleased to be supporting Fair Pay Fortnight, which began on 24 March and runs through to Friday 4 April 2014, with some events over the weekend. It is an initiative of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in Britain.
In a landmark lecture at Swansea University this week, a leading Welsh historian and theologian will argue that our thinking about welfare and economics needs to be turned upside down through engagement with disabled people and carers.
I am looking forward to delivering my forthcoming lecture in the Swansea University Public Lectures in Theology series (24 March 2014, details below), and I am very appreciative to the University for giving me this opportunity.
