    The Archbishop Blanch Memorial Lecture Charity was founded as a tribute to Stuart Blanch, beloved former Bishop of Liverpool and Archbishop of York. Stuart became Bishop of Liverpool in 1966 and quickly captured the hearts and minds of clergy and laity in the diocese and is still fondly remembered. Nine years later he left us, on his appointment as Archbishop of York. He retired in 1983 and died in 1994. There were well-attended Memorial Services in both York and Liverpool. After some months, thought was being given to a suitable more lasting memorial. Thus was born the annual lecture which bears his name. The first trustees were all clergy who had served in Liverpool when Stuart Blanch was our Bishop, and who wanted his legacy to be like the man – offering clear exposition of both the Old and New Testaments, and relating the text of Scripture to current issues. The 2013 Lecture was delivered by The Revd Dr Samuel Wells and was entitled What's Wrong with Poverty? The Revd Dr Samuel Wells is the vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London. Sam has served as a parish priest for 15 years – 10 of those in urban priority areas. He also spent 7 years in North Carolina where he was Dean of Duke University Chapel. Sam is also Visiting Professor of Christian Ethics at King’s College, London, and a non-residential theological canon at Chichester Cathedral. He has published 17 books, including works on Christian ethics and collections of sermons. His books include ‘What Anglicans Believe’, ‘Introducing Christian Ethics’ and ‘Be Not Afraid: Facing Fear with Faith’. He has two books being published later this year: ‘Crafting Prayers for Public Worship: The Art of Intercession’ and ‘Learning to Dream Again’.

      Part of an interview series with Duke University Divinity School faculty looking at the hidden wounds of war and the Church's resources that can help those in recovery. Created for the After the Yellow Ribbon event: Veterans today commit suicide at the highest rate in our nation’s history, have startling rates of prescription drug and alcohol abuse, and are often thought of as “damaged goods.” Our society must accept the responsibility of acknowledging and confronting the moral fragmentation that our service members suffer as a result of their experiences in war. After the Yellow Ribbon at Duke Divinity School is an opportunity for the ecclesial, academic, and martial communities in particular to listen to and learn from those who endure the burden of doing violence in our name. We invite practitioners of all disciplines, from music and the arts to theology and mental health, to respond to the challenge presented by the plight of soldiers and veterans in our midst. We want to work together to improve our efforts at prevention and reconstitution, and overcome this tragic epidemic. After the Yellow Ribbon is designed to stimulate conversation between the church, military and academic communities so that all might approach service members and veterans as human beings, and more fully understand and heal the unseen wounds of war (including PTSD and moral injury).
