CARDINAL and PRIME MINISTER – What does the future hold?

Friend of the UC Forum, Everald Compton, has posted his latest opinion bulletin on the topic of the current circumstances of three Australian leaders – George Pell, Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott. Everald presents an observation on the parallels and linkages amongst these three men of church and state and makes a prophetic observation on their futures. Time will tell how accurate his is, but be aware that Everald has been right many times before!

Everald is a Uniting Church member, and has a strong commitment to the huge task of implementing the Blueprint for an Ageing Australia as Chairman of the LONGEVITY INNOVATION HUB.

His work as a consultant to ATEC RAIL GROUP LTD, of which he was Chairman for 18 years, is part of his plan to see that Australia has top quality long distance railways to efficiently transport domestic freight and export commodities, preferably owned and managed by private companies.

He also chairs Tenement to Terminal Ltd (3TL) which is building a live cattle export facility at the Port of Gladstone in Queensland. The challenge of designing and implementing the logistics of this operation and establishing export markets in Asia is a fascinating one.

His other passion in infrastructure is WATER, especially the drought proofing of the entire continent. In partnership with his friend John Thompson, they have planned a major project to divert tropical water to the Darling River and constantly lobby governments to implement it.

As an Elder of the Uniting Church in Australia, he is actively involved in the positive role of Christianity in the world.

Two particular activities are:

ACTS, a charity founded by the Aspley Uniting Church to care for people in need. Everald is its Chairman and the activities are mainly concentrated on broken homes, domestic violence, deprived children and refugees.

NORTH BRISBANE INTERFAITH GROUP, which brings together people of all religious faiths in regular dialogue. They particularly concentrate on improving religious understanding, poverty and illiteracy.
