Religion as Relationship
“What if depression is, in fact, a form of grief - for our own lives not being as they should? What if it is a form of grief for the relational connections we have lost, yet still need?” Johann Hari, Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression
“Every social media status update is a just a variation on a single request: ‘Would someone please acknowledge me?” Marc Maron
The role of religious faith in today's society is hotly debated.
In this talk a Clinical Psychologist explores religion as a powerful resource that meets our present need for connectedness with the central idea that at the heart of the Christian faith is not ritual nor rules but a claim to a personal connection and relationship with the God who is there.
We were delighted to welcome Dr Amarjit Dulku to help us explore this topic.
Dr Amarjit qualified as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist after obtaining his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. He now specialises as a Clinical Neuropsychologist in the NHS with people suffering from brain disorders and mental health challenges. He is also an Honorary Teacher in Clinical Psychology at the University of Leicester and an Associate Fellow of The British Psychological Society. Amarjit is also a Christian who seeks to integrate his faith and work and enjoys travelling and experiencing other cultures with his wife and daughter.
Do come along and bring colleagues for what will be a really fascinating talk.
Parks At One will be meeting in the Trinity Centre. Food is available to purchase at the cafe on site or free to bring your own lunch while you listen.
