Description

How do we imagine time and how does our imagination shape our perception of prayer? This lecture explores what it means to cultivate a historical imagination and to develop an awareness of our location in time - past, present and future. It considers how such an awareness can sensitize us to our contemporary missional context, challenge prevailing post-modern perceptions of the self, and foster hope, identity and confidence.
