Peter Lineham prophesying (!!) in Christchurch 2 July 2016

Following up my post from last Friday, later that morning I received the following advertisement for Professor Peter Lineham speaking in Christchurch, 2 July 2016. Although his advertised topic is different to the Wellington lecture mentioned in the previous post, I imagine he will touch on the question of "survival by sectarianism" (that's my phrase). Here is the advertisement:

Will Christianity survive in Christchurch beyond 2020?:
a diagnosis and a realistic prognosis

Hi Rosemary and Rosemary
Yes, I have at least two readers with the same first name.
Each is more than capable of holding me to account re what I write and say, and each is interested in the future of the church.
Blessings to you both,
