‘An Evil Day’ RE Student Conference with Lat Blaylock

This dynamic and interactive learning day about evil, goodness, philosophy and religion will explore a wide range of spiritual, religious and ethical approaches to questions about evil and how to reduce it.

Students attending the day will gain an experience of university life. The teaching methods will introduce key ideas from faith in ways that provoke argument and deepen thought. Students will be involved in a collaborative creative activity.

What is evil? How can humans live together for goodness? What conquers evil – Love? Co-operation? Faith? Nothing? What does it mean to choose a path in life that works for goodness, truth and life?
