Linked to this, applications are invited from postgraduate students based in the UK for a one-year KLICE Research Associate position in the area of environmental theology and ethics. The role will involve attending and writing a report on the March workshop, and other related tasks. A small honorarium is available. Eligible candidates should contact the Director, Jonathan Chaplin for further information as soon as possible (email@example.com).
KLICE is co-sponsoring a conference, ‘Reform or Revolution – unlocking the power of biblical law’, organised by the Jubilee Centre and held in Cambridge on 25 February. Participants will ‘discover how biblical law, rather than being a static set of archaic rules, is a powerful body of wisdom which God expects Christians to apply in creative, radical ways to bring hope and transformation in each generation’. Keynote speaker is Professor Jonathan Burnside (University of Bristol), former chair of the KLICE Council. The (free) event launches Reformation2017, a year-long programme of activities to celebrate the contemporary relevance of the Reformation for culture and society, 500 years on (also co-sponsored by KLICE).
At 6pm (GMT) on 7 February, Director Jonathan Chaplin will be leading a 90-minute webinar on ‘a biblical view of government’, hosted by the Forum of Christian Leaders (FOCL). For information on how to participate, click here.
