When: Sunday 7 July, 11:45am Where: Wellbeing Studio, Level 1, St Michael's Place
One of the key note presenters at the impressive July conference: "Sacred Earth: Original Blessing; Our common Home" is Mathew Fox, who some of us have heard in Rev Burnham's sessions 'Saving Jesus.' Matthew was actually here at St Michael's speaking on Ecology, Religion & Spirituality back in 1993. Those who cannot go to Sydney for the conference might like to come and listen to a recording of his still relevant talk which I have a copy of.
It will also be a chance for an exchange of current environmental ideas in our circle.
Bring your cuppa, nibbles to share.
