‘Looking into the Light’: Philip Carr-Gomm in conversation with Rev Peter Owen Jones,
Tuesday 25th May 2021 19.00 – 20.15 BST
on behalf of The Fintry Trust
In this series of sessions entitled Looking into the Light, Philip Carr-Gomm interviews a number of religious thinkers, making use of the power of conversation to enlighten, educate, perhaps even amuse and entertain, while focussing on the issues that really matter.
By talking with people who have devoted their lives to the spiritual quest, he hopes both to explore philosophical questions and to learn how their lives have been directed and transformed by their search.
Philip writes: “I first came across Peter Owen Jones, watching him on TV. I then met him personally and we became friends, and I got to know the man beneath the persona described by the media as ‘the maverick 21st century priest, spiritual explorer, TV presenter and author’. Every time I come away from a conversation with Peter I feel we’ve travelled deep and far – not only in the world of ideas but within the heart too.”
Rev Peter Owen Jones is an Anglican parish priest based in Sussex. He has written several books and is currently writing Conversations with Nature. He has presented a number of award-winning programmes for the BBC including Extreme Pilgrim, Around the World in Eighty Faiths and England’s Mountains Green.
This is a live Zoom session including talk and questions. Tickets: £15 to support the Trust.
