Bible focus for final plenary today

Lambeth 98's final plenary session, scheduled from 11.30am to 1 pm today, will focus on the use of the Bible throughout the Conference, using a format that combines video presentations with a panel discussion and speaker.

The first section of a video produced by a team directed by former BBC producer Angela Tilby over the course of the conference will offer an introduction to the work and purpose of the conference. Professor David Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity at Cambridge University, will present a keynote address, followed by a second video section on the use of the Bible during the conference. Professor Ford will chair an open discussion by four bishops: Archbishop Richard Goodhew of Sydney, Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold of the United States, Bishop JamesTengatenga of Southern Malawi (Central Africa), and Bishop William Moses, moderator of the Church of South India.

The final video segment on the conference's debates will conclude the presentation.
