Short Course on Mercy in Brisbane
The “Short Course on Mercy” will be held in late February-March 2016 (in Lent).
It aims to explore the biblical, theological and ethical meaning of mercy as part of the Year of Mercy announced by Pope Francis. The planned structure of the Course is:
Assoc. Prof. Orm Rush): Pope Francis’ Theology of Mercy (
Dr. Ian Elmer): Biblical Understanding of Mercy (
Assoc. Prof. Robyn Horner): Creation and Sin (
Dr. David Kirchhoffer): The log in your eye: Mercy and Ethics (
Please note that all the sessions are on evening. The final date on the Short Course website is currently wrong (as it has a session). This will soon be corrected.
