Does Religion Do More Harm Than Good?

Friday, 26th April, 7:45pm

St Peter's Church, Oundle

North St, PE8 4AL

History is littered with wars and atrocities apparently inspired by religion, and today there seems no end to reports of cruelty and violence carried out in the name of God. But is it belief in God that motivates these evils? Or do they spring from other motives?

At the same time, history testifies to numerous benefits to humanity brought about by religious individuals and movements. But despite these positive outcomes might it be true, as some atheists suggest, that religion in general does more harm than good? Is religion itself inherently toxic?

Or could it simply be that there is good religion and there is bad religion, and we just need to learn to tell the difference?

Are the major spiritual traditions greater sources of discord than harmony? Or are conflicts widely blamed on faith differences fundamentally social and political?

In this rich but highly succinct book, Rupert Shortt offers even-handed guidance on one of the most disputed questions of our time.

Rupert Shortt is religion editor of The Times Literary Supplement.

Come along and see if you agree with Rupert Shortt’s views.

Under the leadership of a mysterious fundamentalist known only as John Lark, the Apostles are planning to acquire three plutonium cores. Ethan and his team are sent to Berlin to intercept them, but the mission fails and the Apostles escape with the plutonium. With CIA agent August Walker (Cavill) joining the team, Ethan and his allies must now find the plutonium cores before it's too late.

Stahl Theatre, Oundle

West Street, PE8 4EJ

Cast:  Holly Hunter

Director:  Brad Bird

Release:  2018

Runtime:  1hr 58min

It’s not easy being a superhero when the public turns against you, but it’s even harder being a stay at home dad, as Mr Incredible quickly discovers when Mrs Incredible gets promoted.  There’s lots of goings on, with villains and chases, crashes and bangs;  all great for the kids but we reckon you’ll spend your time sympathising with Mr Incredible as he loses sleep, shaking your head sadly as he lets the housekeeping get out of control, and sharing his bewilderment as superbaby Jack-Jack begins to show what superbabies can do. That’s wreak havoc by the way. Deeply enjoyable.

‘Slapstick genius, profound social comment and a monstrously funny infant combine to conjure a magical second outing for the superhero family.’

In the summer of 1940, Britain stood perilously close to invasion. One by one, the Allied nations of Europe had fallen to the unstoppable German Blitzkrieg, and Hitler had his sights set on Britain. The attack was being exhaustively planned by the Nazis under the codename ‘Operation Sealion’. Yet the promised invasion never happened due to our success in the Battle of Britain, and the prospect of German jackboots on British soil retreated into the realm of collective nightmares – and mainland Britain never had to face the reality of life under the Nazis.

For the residents of the Channel Islands, occupation wasn’t just the terrifying outcome if the war against the Germans was lost, it was the day-to-day reality of their lives. The story of how these men and women, and their children, coped under such difficult and dangerous circumstances is an important, but neglected, part of our own history of the Second World War. This book tells the story of life under Nazi occupation.

Duncan Barrett studied English at Cambridge University and now works as a writer and editor, specialising in biography and memoir. He is also the author of The Sugar Girls, GI Brides, and, The Girls Who Went to War, all of which were top 10 Sunday Times bestsellers.

Mozart                Piano Concerto No.20 in D minor, K466

Mahler                Symphony No.5

The Rutland Sinfonia returns to Oundle in May to perform Mahler’s mighty Fifth Symphony - you may well have heard our performance of Mahler’s First Symphony in Oundle two seasons ago. Like a number of other fifth symphonies by well known composers such as Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich, Mahler's Fifth Symphony moves from dark tragedy in minor keys at the start to blazing triumph in major keys in its closing bars. In this symphony Mahler explores emotional extremes starting with a first movement Funeral March, but the most famous movement is the Adagietto for harp and strings.

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.20 in D minor starts this concert, with Anne Bolt joining us again as soloist. The concerto was first performed in 1785 with Mozart himself as the soloist.

Anne Bolt was born in Leicestershire and returned to her home area in 2001, having studied at the University of Oxford, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Indiana University in America. She  is now Head of Piano at Oakham School.

A retiring collection will be taken for 'Shine'.

Fletton House, Oundle

Fletton Way, Glapthorn Rd, PE8 4JA

Director:  Tim Wardle

Release:  2018

Runtime:  1hr 36min

In 1961 a team of psychiatrists led by Peter Neubauer worked with an adoption agency in the United States to split up a set of identical triplet boys, born to a teenage girl, and place them with families from different socio-economic backgrounds; they wanted to know how three boys with identical DNA would be affected by being brought up in different environments.  This documentary by British film director Tim Wardle traces the extraordinary lives of the triplets, who knew nothing of one another until being reunited by chance at the age of 19.

‘That old adage of truth being stranger than fiction has never been more apt, nor so artfully explored, as in Tim Wardle's fascinating documentary.’

Nikki Baughan, The List
