Jottings from the Queen of Sheba
Three thousand years ago the Queen of Sheba travelled with a huge entourage and wealthy gifts, to listen to King Solomon’s wisdom. Today, Blazing Grannies’ F.Mary Callan invites us to share wisdom and stories those royals might have shared, in the Bible and the Qur’an, legacy for three faiths and the whole human race. A lively, informative, one-woman show.

Ebor Lecture series at the York St John’s University
The Ebor Lectures is an ecumenical project jointly organised by York Minster, York St John University, The Order of Carmelites, The York and Hull District of the Methodist Church and The C. & J. B. Morrell Trust. This series of lectures aims to promote public conversation and to contribute to the formation of personal decisions and collective policy-making in economic, political and social spheres. It is also an ecumenical project that seeks to exchange insights between academic and religious traditions and to build bridges between church and other religious groups. The lectures relate faith to public concerns including politics, economics, contemporary culture, religion and spirituality, society and globalisation, local and global Christianity. Details of the lectures and how to book tickets can be found on the Ebor Lectures website (www.yorksj.ac.uk/eborlectures)
