Doing Justice Facebook 5 February 2021 (re 30 January event): "What an AMAZING day! Hope For Creation saw 50 Christians from across all traditions sharing, listening, laughing, engaging, dreaming, challenging and collaborating with one another on how to care for Creation together in Qld. What emerged at the end of the process were a wide range of conversation topics convened by people in the room and participants are now encouraged to connect with their small groups going forward and experiment with those ideas. There may be an online version of this gathering in the next few weeks to include those unable to come and Qlders further afield. Please get in touch if you're keen to be involved. The topics self-generated from the group were: - Working with children / young people / families - Local Regenerative Economy - Church Engagement - Churches not supporting damage to Creation - Changing Public Discourse - Churches engaging with & learning from First Nations People - Civil Disobedience & Nonviolent Direct Action. Many thanks to Cathy from Tearfund Australia for helping to host this event, and wonderful facilitator Vivienne Read who held space while allowing us to self-organise and work proactively together. We are especially grateful for Bianca Manning from Common Grace for her Acknowledgement of Country and helping us put First Nations people and history at the heart of our creation care discussions. Always wonderful to have Ema Vueti from Pacific Islands Council of QLD Inc. share her perspective and wisdom with us also. Big thanks to St Andrew's, South Brisbane for providing the venue!"
