Who Am I? Identity, Faith and Being Human

April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Who Am I? Identity, Faith and Being Human

What is it that makes you who you are? In the West we live with a passionately autobiographical sense of self – I am who I am so long as I can tell my own story. Research tells us that people are more afraid of dementia than cancer because loss of identity is the worst thing we can imagine. But are there other ways to think about this? Beginning from the experience of people whose identity is seemingly dissolving in dementia, John Swinton and Rowan Williams, two of our greatest theologians, will consider what it really means to be a human being.
