A Christian Wisdom of Reconciliation


Two invitation-only Oxford-based colloquia in 2024, chaired by Joshua Hordern, will form part of a wider project being led by Professor David F. Ford, in his capacity as Co-Chair of Rose Castle Foundation (RCF).

This project, ‘A Christian Wisdom of Reconciliation: Twelve Habits’, sponsored by The McDonald Agape Foundation, will convene two 24-hour colloquia in each of four Universities: Durham, Aberdeen, Cambridge, and Oxford.

Each university will host two roundtable discussions to facilitate in-depth scripturally-rooted theological exploration of three apiece of RCFs ‘12 Habits of a Reconciler’. The Oxford colloquia will examine the habits of empathy, humility and vulnerability.
