    Mission as Listening

    Monday, 27 March 2017 - 5.30-7.00pm

    27march

    “The WORD dwelt among us….full of grace and truth” (John Ch. 1)

    “Listen” (first word of the Rule of St Benedict)

    “Whoever has ears, let them hear” (Matthew 11:15)

    Pope Francis has titled his address for the 50th World Day of Peace, “Nonviolence: a Style of Politics for Peace”. At the heart of nonviolence is listening. Can we imagine a church which has a reputation for being the most compassionate, most engaged listeners in the community and which embodies the practice of peace in all aspects of life, in families, communities and workplaces?

    You are invited to a free workshop/conversation to explore how churches can equip themselves for listening as a way of practical peacemaking ministry, nonviolence and reconciliation. The workshop will provide some simple resources which can be used immediately, including freely available on-line materials, as well as some creative dreaming about how to engage local communities using processes like Open Space Technology, Listening Cafes and Listening Circles.

    Venue: Burt Memorial Hall, St George's Cathedral

    Donation to cover costs: $10 ($5 unwaged)

    RSVP: Michael Wood spacemaker62@gmail.com 

    Sponsored by Michael Wood (Coach/Facilitator and Anglican Chaplain to the University of Western Australia) and Brendan McKeague (Peace Practitioner and co-founder of ‘The Conflict Company’ and ‘Nonviolent Interfaith Leadership Program).

What do religions say about the conservation of flora and fauna? Is eating meat a religious or cultural concern? Is using plastic?

    Spirituality and Human Vulnerability - Mr Ian Carter AO, CEO Anglicare WA

    Join us for percolated coffee, prayers and a presentation, with opportunity for questions and discussion.

    As we move into an increasingly individualistic and unequal world, we are facing up to communities with many people in our midst with a range of complex problems. How we respond to them both as individuals and organisations should be the mark of our community. Is that the case, and how do we find some frameworks to balance professional service delivery as well as responding to spiritual issues and loneliness? As Kenneth Leach said, "Hope is a piece of work, not a state of mind".

    The 2017 Spirituality Series runs from February to December and includes morning and full-day sessions. A pdf of the full programme can be downloaded on this page.

    Time: 9.30am-11.30am.
