Renewing Liberation Theology

Cheers to all at the Urban Theology Unit (UTU) in Sheffield for a stimulating day looking at the 'renewal of Liberation Theology'. John Vincent, Ian Duffield and many others provided much food for thought, and helped provide an intellectual framework for our own conference in Bradford on the subject in the coming weekend.

The UTU is a profoundly important place for British Liberation Theology, it has been its home for several decades, and has produced the most comprehensive UK based material on the subject. More importantly, it has lived it out, setting up community 'Ashrams', fair trade shops and cafe's and being a home to those on the margins.

Long may the work of UTU continue, and excellent place to study and to learn from the wisdom of those who have gone before us. Watch out for a publication coming out of such a thought provoking set of discussions!
