Dear CES Members and friends
Happy New Year – I do hope that 2016 will be a good year for you. CES committee is preparing forums that I am sure you will find both topical and thought-provoking.
As is customary, CES opening forum will provide a theological framework for the new year’s theme, which for 2016 is “Common Wealth: Common Good”.
CES Chair, Bishop George Browning will be our speaker, with a specific focus on the environment. This has been a passion for Bishop George for some time and has resulted in a PhD thesis.
The Forum Topic is “Post Paris: Psychology of a New World Order”.
The Forum Chair will be well-known journalist Paul Bongiorno.
Book Launch: Bishop George’s new book “Sabbath and a Common Good: Prospects of a New Humanity” is based on his doctoral thesis. Dr Will Steffen (Executive Director, ANU Climate Change Institute) and Right Rev'd Dr Stephen Pickard (Executive Director of the ACC&C) will launch the book.
Time and Date: 7.30 pm Wednesday 24th February 2016
Venue: The Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, Blackall St Barton (Corner of Kings Ave).
Cost: A donation of $5 is invited to cover the cost of room hire. Supper is provided.
Publicity: It would be very helpful if you were able to display a publicity leaflet (attached) on your notice boards.
There is no need to book. Just come along.
