1 Courses & Events Programme Autumn 2014 to Summer 2015

2 Welcome Here is our new brochure which we think is packed with good and exciting opportunities to learn. I have been thinking about holy ground and the importance of physical space. I remember working on the top floor of the Baptist Union Offices in Didcot with groups of clergy from the Diocese of Oxford. There was a terrific all-round view of the Wiltshire landscape and it seemed to me that it was easier to work and engage in a light open space than in a dark enclosed one. Of course even places of dereliction are places to engage and learn but there is something special about Sarum which brings to mind Philip Larkin's words from Church Going: A hunger in himself to be more serious, And gravitating with it to this ground, Which, he once heard, was proper to grow wise in... We have noticed a couple of interesting trends this past year. The first is the way in which our non-accredited courses have attracted more people. Last year over 1,000 people have booked on short courses, 300 more than the year before. Second, our MA modules are increasingly attractive to some who wish to do a module and what we call 'audit' the course. Four days, whether with the Bible weeks or with a module, seem to be a good way of deeply engaging in a subject. This year also we are more clear about a range of consultancy services (see page 6) we are offering. We can come to you and supervise, or offer ministry review, or of course you can come here to us and stay over. We look forward to welcoming you to Sarum College.

7 Friends of Sarum College We are fortunate to have loyal friends throughout the world who contribute to Sarum s work in many ways - through prayer, promoting our programmes in the community, volunteering, regular and planned giving. We rely on individual donations, legacies and grants from charitable trusts to cover expenses beyond the day-to-day running costs. Thanks to the generous support of all those who wish Christian education to thrive, the Butterfield Wing refurbishment is complete and the meeting rooms along the corridor of the Wren building have been re-wired. The next project is a long-awaited upgrade our 40-year-old kitchen and the replacement of derelict window frames along the Baker Wing.

18 Courses: Biblical Study Breaks Biblical literacy is at the heart of a well-rounded theological education. These courses are a sustained study of a single biblical book led by emerging and eminent scholars who bring fresh perspectives to the scripture. Students come away from these breaks with a renewed passion for scripture and a deeper sense of the scholarly issues surrounding the text. Sessions may be a mix of lectures, small group work and guided self-study. Arrivals for 1pm lunch on the first day. Departures at 2pm after lunch on the final day. No evening sessions. Residential price includes breakfast, lunch and supper and refreshments. Non-residential price includes lunch and refreshments. Both rates include access to the library during the course. for each Biblical Study Break N 105 R 345 Pondering the Parables Mon 3 to Thurs 6 November 2014 course code 2731 In preparation for the lectionary year of the Gospel of Mark the parables are a vital source of insight. According to Mark (4.34), Jesus never said anything except in parables! That is, at first sight, surprising, not least because what we are used to labelling parables appear so little in this Gospel. Equally surprising perhaps is Mark s summing up of everything that Jesus says under the catch all heading of wisdom (6.2). So, without being exclusively confined to Mark, we can usefully explore how parables - and not just the well-known and often used ones - and wisdom work, and where they situate both Jesus and Mark in the teaching traditions of Israel and the wider world. Tutor David Catchpole is scholar in residence at Sarum College and emeritus professor of theological studies at the University of Exeter. 16

19 The Book of Judges: Exploring its Meanings Mon 2 to Thurs 5 February 2015 course code 2732 Judges is widely considered a problematic book. Is it preached history (H W Herzberg)? Indeed, is it history at all? Or was it intended to convey other, more esoteric, meanings? How does it relate to the Pentateuch as a whole and to the rich religio-cultural environment of the Ancient Near East? We will discover that the book has surprising resonances for our own post-modern society. Tutor Robin Baker is a Fellow of University College London and the recipient of a British Academy personal research grant. A historian and linguist, his research focuses on the history of ideas, including the reflection of Mesopotamian thought and beliefs in the Hebrew Bible. The Bible and Christian Ethics Mon 27 to Thurs 30 April 2015 course code 2734 Questions about what it means to be human and how to live well are as acute now as they have ever been. For most Christians, the Bible is a fundamental source of moral guidance. But how is it to be interpreted? How should we deal with problem texts? Drawing upon recent scholarship, we will consider various approaches to the use of the Bible in Christian ethics. We will also examine several test cases of current interest, such as assisted dying, environmental ethics, and gay marriage. Tutor Stephen Barton is an ordained priest and former tutor in Biblical Studies at Salisbury and Wells Theological College. His publications include Invitation to the Bible (1997), and Life Together: Family, Sexuality and Community in the New Testament and Today (2001). Volumes he has edited include The Family in Theological Perspective (1996) and Holiness Past and Present (2003).

20 Courses: Theology and Culture When we engage in theological study we become part of an ongoing conversation that spans time and culture. In contributing to this dialogue we join a quest to understand and interpret our experience of the present by encountering God s activity in the past and God s promises for the future. Courses and programmes on theology at Sarum support a thoughtful engagement with the gospel and an effective response to contemporary challenges. Theology Quest and Questions Tuesday evenings, 7 to 9pm Term 1: Exploring Christian Belief: God and Creation - 23 September 2014; Term 2: Christ and Salvation - 13 January 2015; Term 3: The Holy Spirit and the Life of the Church - 21 April 2015 course code 4015 This course opens the study of Christian theology to those who want to know what they believe.

Upon this foundation students will explore the content of Christian belief, covering the major topics that have generated dispute and debate, captured 18 Modules in Theology and Culture Open to all, subject to availability.
