National Truths

Monday, 18 June @ 19:30 - 21:00

£5

We are particularly pleased to welcome Bishop Jana Jeruma-Grindberga, Chaplain of our sister church St Saviour’s, Riga in Latvia, to talk to us about Truth and Nations. During the 20th century the Baltic states found themselves at the mercy of the Soviet Union with their national stories often buried beneath a tide of soviet propaganda. The perversion of truth to serve a national interest is nothing new but the systematic and wholesale corruption of reality that characterised the Soviet Union was unprecedented.

In our own time the Baltic states once again feel the chill of Russia seeking to re-establish her influence in the West. How does it feel to live just barely 100 miles from the land border with Russia? How should we as nations and indeed as the church respond to the ‘alternative realities’ published by the Russian state and media? How can the church ‘Do Truth’ in such circumstances?

Come and find out.
