This is a highly enthusiastic reminder that the next Caloundra Uniting Church Explorers ‘Alternative’ Evening Service is on 5pm Sunday 17th April (Sunday next!).
The great news is the Rev. Dr. Rob Bos will be the Guest Speaker and Leader for this service: Please make a note in your diary for 5-7pm Sunday 17th April.
The theme is “ ’Aboriginal Spirituality’ within a progressive Christianity conversation”.
A very special service of great interest to a wide section of the congregation and general community . All welcomed! BYO light finger food for meal and discussion within the service. John Ph. 5492.4229; Anne Ph. 5492 6761.
Rob Bos has had very long, and current, involvement with aboriginal communities in the Western desert APY Lands and Northern Australia, and his writing activities make him a fascinating speaker. I have given him the challenge of speaking and leading a ‘progressive’ service.
Educator, Writer, Editor, Rob was formerly Principal of Coolamon College and Nungalinya College, as well working with the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress. He has had congregational appointments in Grace Christian Community, Aurukun and Weipa. He is the co-editor, with Geoff Thompson, of Theology for Pilgrims: Selected documents of the Uniting Church in Australia.
Rob holds the following degrees: Bachelor of Arts (University of Queensland), Bachelor of Divinity (Melbourne College of Divinity), Doctor of Ministry (McCormick Seminary, Chicago), Doctor of Philosophy (University of Queensland), Master of Distance Education (University of South Australia)
Rob is also a co-secretary of the Caloundra Church Council now that he is spending more time in Caloundra.
So, expect a fascinating service which has discussion within it. Aboriginal spirituality, traditional Christian spirituality ‘overlaid’ throughout the last century, and now discussed within a modern and for many, a progressive spirituality, setting.
