October 31, 1517, marked the day when Martin Luther famously nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Now, 500 years after the event, what do the Reformation and Christian reform generally mean for Christians of all denominations?

What has ecumenism looked like in our shared history? What do we want it to look like in the future? Bishop Eaton’s 2017 Paul Wattson Lecture addresses these questions.

Inculturation and contextualisation are familiar themes in mission when it comes to crossing cultures. They usually conjure up in the mind’s eye mission work in foreign lands or at least among people distinct because of ethnicity or religion. However the Church has been much slower to apply these mission insights to home base. This lecture will explore what it might look like to inculturate the gospel in the West, or as John Taylor put it in the Primal Vision to ‘do it from the inside’.
