Harris Manchester will host this year’s Sermon on the Sin of Pride, one of the University Sermon series. We are delighted that our preacher will be the psychotherapist and best-selling author, Philippa Perry.
This is one of a pair of sermons endowed by William Master in 1684. Master matriculated at Christ Church and was appointed Fellow of Merton College during his undergraduate studies. He left a total of five pounds in his will to the University of Oxford to endow two sermons, on the Sin of Pride and the Grace of Humility. Hosting of University Sermons is rotated around College chapels across Oxford, and this is a rare opportunity for Harris Manchester to host.
Philippa’s works include Couch Fiction: A Graphic Tale of Psychotherapy, How to Stay Sane, and The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did.
A psychotherapist for over twenty five years Philippa is now the advice columnist for the Observer Magazine. She has written and presented several documentaries including The Truth about Children Who Lie, and the series Consumed by Desire for BBC Radio 4, Being Bipolar for Channel 4, How To Be A Surrealist with Philippa Perry for BBC Four, and podcasts for Audible including the six part Siblings in Session.
Philippa is also an artist and has co-presented Grayson’s Art Club on Channel 4 for the past three seasons.
