Here you’ll find articles an/or other writing that you may find helpful and encouraging in your faith walk. Mostly we’ll include links rather than whole articles, and you’ll be able to open the articles in a separate tab. Occasionally, for various reasons, the article itself will be here.
If you have something that you’d like to contribute please ring Lisa or Angela in the church offices (see contacts page) or send one of them an email with the link, and maybe a sentence or two introduction.
1. The fear of others has corrupted the Australian soul. This article is by Rev Prof Andrew Dutney, national President of the Uniting Church in Australia, reflecting on the current social and political culture of Australia:
“ …we need to work out how we can become so frightened of “others” that we lash out and mistreat them in a way that we would never want to be treated ourselves. In this case, we are frightened of asylum seekers, but we have been frightened of different “others” like this before. We need to work out why we’re afraid and then do something about it. Our soul depends on it”. Here’s the link.
2. We’d love to hear from you, if you have read something recently that was helpful to you in your faith walk. (online stuff here, if you have a review/response to one of those WONDERFUL books made with paper that you’ve read, there’s a spot for that too!)
