Faith and Health

A Series of Sunday Evening Talks

As in previous years, Greenbank is joining up with Morningside Parish Church to hold a series of talks on topics of current interest. This year our series is entitled Faith and Health and, as usual, we have a number of speakers eminently qualified to bring light to the issues. The programme for the series is:

Faith and Health, September 2018

  • 2 September: Professor Liz Grant (Director of the Global Health Academy, University of Edinburgh)
    ‘Faith and Health in Global Perspective’
  • 9 September: Professor Scott Murray (St Columba’s Chair of Primary Palliative Care, University of Edinburgh)
    ‘Living and Dying Well’
  • 16 September: Professor Eve Johnstone CBE (Professor of Psychiatry, University of Edinburgh)
    ‘Reflections on over 40 years in Psychiatry’
  • 23 September: Dr Sarah Lane Ritchie (Lecturer in Theology and Science, University of Edinburgh)
    ‘Mind over Matter? Religious Practice and the Pursuit of Health’

Talks are held in the halls at Morningside Parish Church (which sits at the corner of Cluny Gardens and Braid Road) at 7pm, with refreshments being served from 6.30pm.

The strong line-up of speakers and the topics being considered should make this a fascinating series for thought and discussion. All are welcome to join us, whether for just a single evening or for the whole series.

Here is an A4 poster (jpg) describing the lecture series.
