Cambridge Papers Live: Birds Have Nests

By David Corbett 01 Jul 2021

UK housing prices have risen faster than wages since the mid-1990s, leading to a reduced ability of young people to live in secure homes, and a housing affordability crisis. Cambridge Paper author David Corbett shows that, by emphasising the concepts of ‘stewardship’ and ‘home’, there are opportunities for Christians to make a significant contribution in addressing the housing crisis.

A response is given by Chris Beales from the Archbishop of Canterbury's Commission on Housing, Church and Community.

Modern Spirituality: learning from the poets

This Cambridge Paper offers a brief account of current alternative spiritual practices before asking what it is like to negotiate the tension between the assumptions of secularity and the impulses towards extra-ordinary forms of experience. Some of the richest accounts of modern spirituality come from the 1930s, and this paper examines some of the period’s profoundest poetic explorations of belief.
