Te Huinga 2019 | Resilience-Manawaroa
We are delighted to announce that the Ven Dr Justine Allain Chapman and Professor Taiarahia Black will be our keynote speakers at this year's conference. Here is a little about them ...
Ven Dr Justine Allain Chapman
Coping with change and the difficulties of life is something we can’t avoid if we are to live well and become more compassionate to ourselves and those we live amongst. Our spiritual resources can be deepened and shared with greater understanding and we can become wiser, more mature.
Resilience – coming through adversity strengthened - was the subject of my research into pastoral care and led to a doctorate and book, Resilient Pastors: the role of adversity in healing and growth (SPCK 2012) written when I was teaching ordinands and lay people as vice principal of the South East Institute for Theological Education in the UK. The research came out my experience of pastoral ministry as a curate and vicar in South London, as a Head of Religious Education in a multi-faith school in North London and life itself.
Having shared the insights of the research at various clergy gatherings, and then developed them for quiet days and retreats I have gone on to write: The Resilient Disciple: a Lenten journey from adversity to maturity (SPCK 2018).
Now, as the archdeacon of Boston in the diocese of Lincoln, I am familiar with the challenges of life in the Church of England's parishes and draw on them, on themes of the desert, Leonard Cohen, the Japanese art of kintsugi and the life of St Peter as an example of a disciple who came through difficulty to live compassionately and courageously.
Justine will be running a series of presentations and workshops over the course of the conference. Here are a couple of her key works:
