At 4.30pm we’ll be going to the Randwick Ritz to watch a new documentary called “Border Politics” exploring the global refugee crisis, and how governments and ordinary people are responding to it. The screening will include a Q&A with Julian Burnside, who features in the film. Afterwards, we will have dinner together at a local restaurant and discuss issues raised in the film and how we might respond in faith, including some time in prayer.
