Theme: Human Flourishing

Dr Geoff Dumbreck
Religion of the head and heart
Philosophers and theologians have long distinguished between the 'head' and the 'heart', with Pascal famously declaring 'that the heart has its reasons that reason cannot know.' In this paper I will explain what is meant by the 'heart' and why approaches to religion that focus entirely on the 'head' are insufficient. I will argue that the distinction between head and heart is not merely abatract, but has important consequences for liturgy, pastoral work and mission.

Revd Canon Dr Sam Wells, Vicar St Martin in the Fields, London
What exactly is our problem? And exactly what does God expect us to do about it?
Government welfare and charitable institutions, both at home and abroad, are predicated on the assumption that the fundamental human problem is mortality, or at least limitation. But is this so? What might be a truly theological perspective?
