Just a reminder that there is a Sea of Faith Meeting in Cambridge tonight - 5 March 2014 - On Pope Francis' attitudes to non-believers

During a conversation with Don Cupitt at the end of last year he suggested to me that we might have a SoF meeting looking at something connected with the new Pope's thinking. Shortly after this an Italian friend of mine alerted me to a letter Pope Francis wrote in response to several questions posed by the founder of La Repubblica, Eugenio Scalfari, in a number of recent articles.

Since the Pope makes direct reference to the need for "a sincere and rigorous dialogue with those whom, like you [i.e. Scalfari], describe themselves [as] “a non-believer for many years interested and fascinated by the preaching of Jesus of Nazareth”, it seems like a good topic for a Sea of Faith evening.

The Pope's letter, in an English translation, can be found at the link below.


Don Cupitt has kindly made a few notes for us that he has said we can use at the meeting. Please click on the following link to get a pdf copy of these notes:


The meeting takes place on Wednesday 5th March, 2014, in the church hall of the Memorial (Unitarian) Church,Cambridge and will start promptly at 7.30pm and finish at 9.30pm.
