Delights and Challenges 

 As we move into the month of August, we are confronted with the extent and severity of drought in many parts of this land of extremes; with the urgency for action around the proposed Adani mine, the reality of which seems to be getting closer despite its tenuous financial situation, and other realities which are close to your hearts. 

At the same time, Spring seems to be in the air, and we will be having one of our rituals featuring the element Earth sometime in October.  The Season of Creation commences with Creation Day on 1 September and concludes with the Feast of St Francis on 4 October.

I wish to make available to you a 20 page summary of my thesis, When Heaven and Earth Embrace: How Do We Engage Spiritually in an Emerging Universe?  I believe that this work makes an important contribution to theologically informed ecospirituality as the ground of our commitment to working for the enhancement of Earth and cosmos.  There may be a book in it later.

You can commit to intentionally living a sustainable life through the current campaign of the Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC), links to which are included below.

Wine, Cheese and Conversation, 2018

Thursdays, 9 August and 6 September, at Delamore Retirement Centre, Turner Road, Kedron.  We are beginning a conversation with Kevin Treston about his most recent book, The Wind Blows Where It Chooses.   No need to reply. Just come, and bring something to drink and nibble during the first half-hour.
