Sally Hitchiner - 2nd April

Revd. Sally Hitchiner is chaplain at Brunel University and the founder of Diverse church which supports LGBT+ Christians all over the UK.  She is also a frequent media commentator and often appears on national TV reviewing the papers or being interviewed about church news.

She talked about the many issues which the church faces currently which can be seen as creating a crisis for the institution.  It is helpful to view this in terms of liminal space and therefore becomes an opportunity rather than a threat.  Liminal comes from the latin for threshold and can be seen as a creative opportunity to step out, rather than a defensive retreat.  Living in a liminal space can be uncomfortable but is often a place where God can work.
