The Netherlee Forum stimulates lively discussion on hot topics and meets on the third Monday of each month from October to March. The evening rounds up with coffee and further chat! All are welcome to come along, bring a friend.
The next meeting of The Forum will take place on Monday 20th November @ 7.30pm in the Lesser Sanctuary.
The speaker will be Dr Ronald Crawford talking about ‘Slavery and the Kirk – an inconvenient truth.’
Dr Ronald Crawford, Honorary Research Fellow and former Registrar of the University of Strathclyde is himself a member of Netherlee Church and is well known to many of us. Ronald is an accomplished author, and his address to the Forum coincides with the publication of his latest book “The Chair of Verity: Political preaching and pulpit censure in eighteenth-century Scotland”. The book deals with the subject of the inter-dependence of politics and the pulpit and the Kirk’s stance on issues such as heresy, political reform, popery and slavery.
The Forum is open to all, so please come along and join us, as we learn more about the background and history of our denomination. The evening should include a friendly welcome and refreshments afterwards.
