We’ll discuss responses to three common questions raised at synodal assemblies.

(2) What are we as a national or regional church doing not so well?

Wednesday 6 November, 1.30-2.55pm

Dom Cyprian Love OSB, Glenstal Abbey: “Atonement and the Language of Excess”

Because of its elusive nature, there has always been a tense relationship between the work of Christ and the language and concepts used to elucidate it. The paper will examine ways in which Christ’s atonement has been framed linguistically and suggest an analysis of the way the human mind lays hold upon the atonement. Scriptural atonement language incorporates dreamlike and playful aspects, which enhance our grasp of Christ’s work.
