It is with great joy that we announce noted theologian, priest, and author James Alison as our latest Theologian in Residence at Christ Church Cranbrook. Alison will join us for 6 classes including a guest visit to lead our NEW lenten book study (details below). He has studied, lived and worked in Latin America, Spain, the United States as well as his native England. James earned his doctorate in theology from the Jesuit Faculty in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in 1994 and is a systematic theologian by training. James now works as a traveling preacher, lecturer and retreat giver. He gives academic lectures, various seminars, adult catechesis courses, retreats for priests, parish groups, and Catholic and ecumenical gay and lesbian retreats. In addition, he is known for his firm but patient insistence on truthfulness in matters gay as an ordinary part of basic Christianity, and for his pastoral outreach in the same sphere. Given his expertise, Alison will be an excellent addition to upcoming events below.
