Homilies & Addresses Bishop Cam Venables Homilies & Addresses

Generosity and grace…well-seasoned by wisdom

“Somehow in Christ we are called to a new way of relating that is deeply grounded in the relationship we have with God. It’s not the transactional: you do something to me or for me, and – in response – I do something to you or for you. Instead, I think we are called to proactive generosity and grace…well-seasoned by wisdom,” says Bishop Cam Venables in this recent homily

"Most profound of all, of course, Peter’s graciousness eloquently manifests and expresses the very heart of the gospel. It resonates with the nuances of tonight’s passage from John" (Archbishop Phillip Aspinall, pictured here with the newly consecrated Bishop of Rockhampton Peter Grice and clergy from around Australia)
