Magna Carta, 800 years old today, deserves all the love bestowed upon it. A British Library exhibit sums up what it stands for: “Law, liberty and legacy.” Where would we be today without “the Great Charter”? But are human rights the limits of our freedom, or is there more?
Watch a web streamed talk on this topic! I gave a public lecture on Sunday, June 14, at Egham’s Literary Institute. Egham is right next to Runnymede, where the “great Charter” was first signed, and it’s been at the heart of commemorations of “Magna Charta” as US folk call it. My talk was called “Another ‘foundation of liberty’ — a divine law that heals”. Click here to view the archived lecture until the end of August, 2015.

2. I am also giving a public lecture at 5pm (UK time, noon EST) this Sunday, June 14, in Egham – the English city at the heart of the commemorations of “Magna Charta” (as Americans call it). It is such a privilege to be lecturing in Egham, which is right next to Runnymede, where the “great Charter” was first signed. The local branch has invited me to give the talk at the nearby Literary Institute (High St, Egham, TW20 9EW, UK), and it is called “Another ‘foundation of liberty’ – a divine law that heals”. It is also being web streamed live. Click here for info about the web streamed lecture.
If you can’t attend the live event or watch it when it is being web streamed, the video will be available online at the UK Online Reading Room’s YouTube page a few days after the talk, and will remain available till the end of August. And whether you tune in to my talk or not, don’t miss the opportunity this weekend presents to learn more about this little document with big ideas that has had a huge impact on the world!
For those missing the SATURDAY THOUGHT photo-quote, normal service will be resumed next week . Thanks for your understanding!
