Reform magazine: November edition

In the November edition of Reform, Stephen Tomkins speaks to Anthony Reddie, recently appointed Oxford University’s first ever Professor of Black Theology.

They talk whiteness, the Church’s role in empire-building, and the decision to roll out anti-racist training across the United Reformed Church – a process that Anthony will lead.

In the face of the Israel-Hamas war, Stephen also makes space for reflection, and there’s a full report on the initial response of faith communities to the situation.

Viv Henderson learns from Jesus’ role as a healer, and Barbara Bennett wonders about the difference between worship and performance.

There’s also a warning about “pressing record” from preacher and comedian Paul Kerensa, and four writers make their case for a book of the Bible we should spend more time with.

The magazine is out on 30 October.
