Befriending Death? Reflecting on vulnerability

  • Course Dates: Sun 31 May 2020, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

We all know something of loss, change and the fragility of life.

This reflective session will open up the shape and meanings of death and invite participants into imaginative, honest and compassionate responses.

Amidst Covid 19 and our experience of our human boundedness, can theology help us?

This is a free event that will be held via Zoom and is part of the Salisbury 2020 Big Weekend (29-31 May).

Sarum College has joined with city partners to pull together a programme of online events to mark the city’s transformation 800 years ago when Salisbury Cathedral relocated from Old Sarum to the Close.

The weekend offers a variety of events and activities to commemorate the faith, dedication, physical strength and ingenuity it took to carry out this feat.
