The Keswick Lectures '19 - A Mucky Business

Tim Farron - Faith in our politicians, and our political system, has rarely been at a lower ebb. We despair at the chaos of Brexit. Whether we think that the problem is intractable, or that it has simply been badly handled, our frustration has now turned to fatigue. We are tempted to throw up our hands and disengage from politics altogether. We want to withdraw into our tribes and seek comfort within our Christian family. Come along and hear MP Tim Farron speak about why we should be doing the opposite, and continue to engage with politics in these fractious and fragile times.
