Talking the talk

I am giving a talk tomorrow evening (12th Oct, 7pm) to the Cardiff University Students for Life group: see the Facebook event.

It is my second trip to address the very active pro-life group there and I am looking forward to it. My talk is entitled 'Mercy, Murder, and Euthanasia', and will be in the Large Chemistry Lecture Theatre at the University.

On Tuesday Oct 25th October 7.30pm I am giving a talk to the 'Inn Catholics': 'A Political Future for England - Saint Thomas Aquinas and the Common Good', at the Star Tavern, Belgrave Mews West, London, SW1X 8HT.

There is no entrance fee (it says 'Voluntary contributions welcome'). The Inn Catholics, an informal group meeting to hear a talk in the convivial atmosphere of a pub, has recently been revived and was addressed last by Fr Tim Finnigan. See their blog.

On Monday 14th November at 6pm I am giving a talk to the pupils of the Oratory School, 'Can Faith be Reasonable?'. I was recently at the Oratory School for the Evangelium Conference (where, inevitably, I gave a couple of talks); it is also the venue for the St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat. This will be my first visit to see the school actually functioning as a school, and I look forward to meeting some of the boys!

This is what happens when everyone gets going again after the Summer holidays, I fear: life gets very busy. I'm not complaining, however, I like the sound of my own voice and I agree to give talks whenever I can - on bioethical issues, faith and reason, the LMS, or pretty much anything. Here I am in full flow.
