Guest Preacher: Paula Gooder
This Sunday we are delighted to welcome Canon Dr Paula Gooder as we continue to explore our sermon series ‘La Peste’. Paula will preach on the theme: prayer in a time of disaster.
Paula has responsibility for growing and leading the Cathedral’s expanding theological and learning programme, which is a major part of the Christian mission and outreach of the Cathedral. Paula is one of today’s best known New Testament theologians, a scholar and teacher and is a Licensed Lay Reader in the Church of England. She was previously Director of Mission Learning and Development at the Diocese of Birmingham and Theologian in Residence at the Bible Society. Paula has also written a number of books including Journey to the Empty Tomb, Body: Biblical Spirituality for the Whole Person and Heaven. Paula as Chancellor attends Chapter and plays a full part in its work, although at present the law does not allow her as a paid lay person to be a Chapter member.
