Seminar 11:
The Metaphor of 'Ground':
A Conception of God for a Secular Age

This seminar will explore the metaphor of 'ground' which is used of God, and the ways in which the metaphor opens up a theological understanding which goes beyond the notion of God as a 'super-person'. Sarah Bachelard will connect this with contemplative spiritual practice.

Venue St Peter's Hall, Eastern Hill
