Event description

Description

This generation is facing a crisis like none before it: a crisis of trust. We no longer trust the individuals, ideologies and institutions that previous generations once believed in.

In a world with Presidents we don’t trust, Prime Ministers that weren’t elected and promises that turned out to be propaganda – we could be forgiven for being cynical about the system.

Our fingers have been burned too often by the abuses of power and the betrayals of promises and commitments - and we are left adrift and confused, without a sense of how to find hope for change or anything different.

So how should we pray for the leaders of our countries, companies and churches – when our fingers have been burned by the abuses of power and the betrayals of promises and commitments? Rev Mark Meynell of the Langham Partnership joins us to analyse the problem and offer suggestions for how to find grounds for hope.



This event will be held at the Redcliffe Centre in the grounds of Gloucester Cathedral. This event will cost £5 which is payable on arrival, but space is limited and a guestlist will be in operation, so please sign up today to register for this event. The evening will last two hours, including interactive content and a fifteen minute interval for refreshments.


Mark Meynell is the author of A Wilderness of Mirrors: Trusting again in a cynical world, and is Associate Director for Langham Preaching, Langham Partnership.
