TRS UK members will be sad to hear of the recent death of Owen Cole. The Guardian published this obituary making clear his contribution to the discipline of Religious Studies and beyond. There will be a celebration of his life at 2pm, on Sunday November 10th, in the Chapel at the University of Chichester (Bishop Otter Campus, College Lane, Chichester), to which all are welcome. The celebration will be held in the manner of Friends (Quakers). This means anyone who wishes to speak is very welcome to share memories. Owen requested that no black should be worn.
