Sunday 26 November, 3pm – SOMETHING NEW
Saturday 2 December, 5.30pm: PEACEtalks – BOOK LAUNCH: A CLIMATE OF JUSTICE.
St George’s will be hosting the Sydney book launch of Dr Mick Pope’s excellent new work, A Climate of Justice: Loving our neighbour in a warming world.
Those who have contributed least to our climate crisis are the ones facing the worst impacts: the global poor, future generations and other species. This grave injustice demands a thoughtful Christian response, yet so do many other issues.
Climate scientist and theologian Mick Pope explores how climate justice intersects with inequality, slavery, Aboriginal injustice, the refugee crisis and more, while tying them all to the Christian good news through one of Jesus’ best-known parables. This is an important new book for Australian Christians who want to point to and reflect the heart of a just God in a hurting world.
We’ll not only be hearing from Mick, but also getting a panel of experts to open up the issues, a Q&A session, a yummy dinner and a chance to get signed copies of the book at a special discount price.
This is the first half of a PEACEtalks double-header. After dinner, we’ll be hearing from Liam Bray on some political and ethical implications of developments in AI.
Sunday 10 December – NATIVITY PLAY
Please put the Nativity Play in your diary! There will be two performances; one at 11:30am and one at 2pm.
EVENING SERVICE SUMMER UPDATE
As we head into Summer and the days lengthen, the evening congregation has decided to shift back to a later time for December and January. We’ll begin with dinner at 7pm and then move into prayer and common worship from 8pm. During Advent, this will enable us to have a season of candlelit, contemplative services as we prepare for the coming of our Lord. There will be no regular evening service on the 24th or 31stDecember, due to our annual Christmas Eve service at 11pm, and New Years Eve respectively.
