Bishop Mwita Akiri to deliver Sadleir Lecture
Each year, Wycliffe College remembers Rev. Charles Sadleir (pictured in one of the stained glass windows in Founders' Chapel) who graduated from Wycliffe College in 1892. After three years of parish ministry in Manitoba, Rev. Sadleir responded to an appeal for a missionary to Chile's Araucanian Indians. In his honour, the Sadleir Annual Lecture focuses on Christian missions.

PhD Candidate David Clark published in Scottish Journal of Theology
Wycliffe College PhD Candidate David Clark has had a peer-reviewed article published by the Scottish Journal of Theology (an imprint of Cambridge University Press).
David's article, "Psalm 74:8 and November 1938: rereading Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Kristallnacht annotation in its interpretive context" establishes the context of Bonhoeffer's figural approach to the Psalter. In so doing, he addresses the question of the theological claim Bonhoeffer might have been making about the tragic events of November 1938.
