Previous short courses:

Anglican Identity

In Advent 2022, Dr Hull offered a series of four talks entitled around the question What does it mean to be an ‘Anglican’ Christian?

The talks are an overview of Anglican/Episcopal identity organised around the Chicago–Lambeth Quadrilateral to look at four staples Anglicans have classically identified as the bases of their doctrine and practice.

Each of the talks is about 30 minutes and may be found here:

  1. Holy Scripture: ‘all things necessary to salvation’ and the rule of faithDownload the handout.
  2. The Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds: symbols and statements of faith.
  3. The Dominical Sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  4. The historic Episcopate: a universal and locally adopted means of unity

Episcopalians and Their Ethics

In Lent 2022, Dr Hull offered a series of six talks entitled ‘Episcopalians and Their Ethics’.

The talks are an overview of Christian Ethics from an Episcopal/Anglican perspective with the aim to develop a well-informed understanding of Christian deliberation on behaviour and the ways in which Anglicanism informs and shapes the morality of individuals and communities.

Each of the talks is about 30 minutes and may be found here:

  1. What is Christian ethics?
  2. Why should I choose good over evil? 
  3. How do I tell good from evil?
  4. What is conscience?
  5. Why follow conscience?
  6. Where do I go with Christian ethics?

Reading the Bible like an Episcopalian

In Advent 2021, Dr Hull offered a series of four talks entitled ‘Reading the Bible like an Episcopalian’.

Because we Episcopalians, like all Christians, read the Bible from our own perspective and within our own denomination, it is worth probing our own predilections. It is worth asking, in other words, what characterises an Episcopalian approach to the Bible over time, say, from the Reformation until today.

Each of the talks is about an hour and may be found here:

  1. The Bible’s authority: Who’s got the last word?
  2. Praying with the Bible: Why a Book of Common Prayer?
  3. The Bible in the Enlightenment: Who’s the light of the world?
  4. The Bible in the twenty-first century: How do we read it?
