Ambassador in Conversation with a Bishop

Date: March 1, 2021

Tomorrow at 12:45 p.m., our Center for Anglican Communion Studies is hosting another fascinating lunch-time forum entitled “Christian Leadership: Faith in Diplomacy.” The forum features John Casson, former U.K. ambassador to Egypt, and national leader, L’Arche UK, alongside Bishop Graham Kings, honorary assistant bishop in the Diocese of Ely and former mission theologian in the Anglican Communion.

CACS has provided us with a terrific opportunity to hear from two distinguished leaders on their experience as global leaders, as well as faithful disciples of Christ. The forum really is quite exciting, especially for members of our community actively involved in policymaking, or simply anyone interested in the relationship between faith and governance or leadership.

The forum will be hosted by our very own Rev. Katherine Grieb, Ph.D., incoming director of CACS (July 2021), and moderated by Wanjiru Gitau, Ph.D., CACS Fellow in International Ecumenism. Viewers can expect a range of questions, but particularly those relating to Christian inhabitations of power, emphasizing theological themes of incarnation, diversity, and public witness.

I am sure that this full panel will give us all plenty to consider as we learn from their example. Do tune in at 12:45, either on Zoom (registering with this link) or on the Center for Anglican Communion Studies’ Facebook page or the VTS YouTube channel, where it will be live streamed.

The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President
