Editor of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography will speak on‘William Beveridge, William Temple and R. H. Tawney: Founding the Welfare State and welcoming Jewish refugees.’  Remarkable men
The relationships between three of the founders of the welfare state - William Beveridge, it's architect; William Temple, wartime Archbishop of Canterbury an d the man who coined the very term 'welfare state'; and R. H. Tawney, the author of the most famous 20th century British socialist text, Equality (1931). They were friends at Oxford; Tawney married Beveridge's sister; Temple officiated at that wedding and at the later wedding of Beveridge. They were all very active in assisting Jewish scholars in the 1930s who were fleeing from Nazism and Tawney was a founder of what became the CCJ. Beveridge took the lead in assisting Jewish scholars from his position as Director of the London School of Economics. Temple and Tawney were profound Christians as well (though Beveridge was an atheist).

From the perspective of the Centurion, John and Mary
 
This was the biggest event in history and only a few people would witness it.  What did Mary feel watching her son die in agony?  How did His beloved disciple John cope seeing all their dreams come to an end?  How about the Roman centurion who had seen many die—why was this different? We invite you to join us as we reflect upon the Cross as Easter approaches with this excellent teaching from Jill Gower, all in an atmosphere of prophetic worship.
