Speaking about my walk of repentance

By Symon Hill
November 29, 2011

In summer this year, I walked from Birmingham to London as a pilgrimage of repentance for my former homophobia. Since then, I’ve been a bit taken aback by the number of requests I’ve received to give talks about it. I’m really chuffed that so many people are interested.

In the talks I’ve given so far, I’ve been both encouraged and challenged by the questions and conversation. I hope that the other people there have got as much out of the events as I have. Many thanks to the people who have organised the events I’ve spoken at so far – at Courage UK, the Greenbelt festival, the Student Christian Movement, Southampton University, St Mark’s Church, Sheffield and City United Reformed Church, Cardiff.

Over the next few days, I’ll be discussing my walk on three occasions:

Firstly, at 6.00pm on Wednesday (30 November) at Royal Holloway, University of London (just west of London). See http://www.su.rhul.ac.uk/news/article/6001/337 or visit the Facebook event at http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=325854620765098.

Secondly, at 7.30pm on Thursday (1 December) at the Chaplaincy at Warwick University (in Coventry). See http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/sunion/christianfocus/termcard/?calendarItem=0....

Thirdly, as part of my sermon at All Hallows Church, Leeds at 10.30am on Sunday (4 December). See http://www.allhallowsleeds.org.uk/.

I’m very much looking forward to them all! If you would like to know more, please feel free to email me at symonhill@gmail.com.
