Mercy, Love and Forgiveness Conference
Christ the King Sixth Forms was proud to host a Mercy Love and Forgiveness conference this week. We were excited to be able to welcome distinguished speakers Reverend Jonathan Aitken, Lord Alton, Dr Lewis Herrington, Archdeacon of Hackney Elizabeth Adekunle, Jo Berry and Barry and Margaret Mizen.
This academic conference is part of a series of activities and events aimed at giving explicit effect to our mission. The conference explored and embedded key themes which stem from our college motto ‘Ut Vitam Habeant’ (That they may have life in all its fullness John 10:10), those key themes are Mercy, Forgiveness and Love.
Current global and local issues such as excesses of materialism, loneliness, religious persecution, poverty, humanitarian crisis and environmental concerns are just some of the political, social and economic questions facing us all. Drawing on gospel values we hope to begin to explore our spirituality and to examine how Mercy, Forgiveness and Love play a crucial role in transforming our communities, ourselves and leading us to greater love for all creation.
This opportunity to listen, engage and reflect would hopefully have helped to guide leaders of current and future generations to a world that is unafraid to show mercy, forgiveness and love. It will challenge us all to live a good life in all its fullness.
