Time: October 28th

Place: Oslo Cathedral, Karl Johans gate


How do we believe, and why? How is the darkness within us connected to faith? How can church and society make a cora – a safe and active place - both for longing and belonging? How can we do that without reducing the freedom of the subject-in-prosess? What kind of care can sharing of belief represent?

Open for all.
