Description:
Lest We Forget: Re-imagining Remembrance and Armistice in a Warring World

One hundred years on from the ‘War to end Wars’, the world remains riven by conflict and society continues to reach for rituals to remember old and recent wars, as well as acts of terror. The changing shape of Church and British society raises questions about how best to remember the dead of the past one hundred years. Through this study day, Rachel Mann will use the insights of her latest book ‘Fierce Imaginings: The Great War, Ritual, Memory & God’ to help participants reflect again on how God and the Christian faith speak into our rituals of remembrance and commemoration as the 100th anniversary of the Armistice approaches.

Rachel Mann is a priest, poet and writer based in south Manchester. A former Resident Poet at Manchester Cathedral, she is the author of four books as well a contributor to many others. Former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams called her latest book, ‘Fierce Imaginings’, ‘the most searching and original book I’ve read on the impact of the First World War on the faith and myths of this country.’

Venue: Foxhill House and Woodland, Tarvin Road, Frodsham WA6 6XB
