Bishop Cam's 2023 message to school staff

“The particular focus for schools this year is human dignity, for in recognising the dignity of all human beings we will inevitably be drawn to the work of peace making, and away from the easy path of division and conflict. Education is essential to creating this understanding of mutual dignity and respect in the hearts and minds of young people,” says Bishop Cam Venables

Reflections

I get locked down, but I get up again

“Often my ‘best’ looks more like hurdle-clipping Nicholas Hough than gold medallist Sifan Hassan, but all I can do is take another step and then another. And, one beauty of being part of a community of faith is that there are always others alongside, ahead of and behind me cheering me on, encouraging me, offering me support and reminding me that ‘my best’ is enough,” says Bishop Jeremy Greaves

What makes a flourishing faith community?

“Faith communities are committed to living out God’s mission. In the Anglican Church Southern Queensland, there are many different ways that people connect, belong and contribute to this mission…different faith communities express this diversity, whether it’s in parishes, in schools, in aged care facilities or youth communities, or mission agencies, or hospitals, or prisons, or a hundred other places,” says Archbishop Phillip Aspinall
