ANVIL Examines Freedom of Expression with Gill Cleverley

Tuesday 15 April 2014, 13:21
By John Baxter

Gillian Cleverley, long standing member and speaker for Amnesty International on Human RightsThe latest meeting of ANVIL (2nd April) in the Quaker Barn building was well attended, with all the seats booked (16 available) and Gill presented us with a carefully researched and highly informative paper which you can access here.

Anvil is open to anyone who wishes to come, but to keep it at a discussion group size each meeting is restricted to sixteen places, a policy which we are finding is working really well, together with our policy of placing the paper or a summary of it on our website for people to read before the session.

We now have a two-month break until our next session on Wednesday 18th June, when the Revd Jo Penberthy, Vicar of Cucklington, will be speaking on the subject, "What makes something a fact? The construction of scientific meaning from a theological perspective."

Anyone who has heard Jo speak will know that while this title sounds demanding, Jo is a compelling speaker and will be able to make what she has to say both interesting and understandable. She will be exploring how we come to accept something as true and how the complexity of this process can shed light on the religion science dialogue.

If you wish to come, email to reserve your place on a first come first served basis. Also feel free to email in your personal reflections on Gill Cleverley's paper for me to place on the above website.
