The Redcliffe Explorers: Who are we, and what are we about?
I’m hoping we’ll be able to get together next month, which will be our first gathering for the year. We’ll make it fairly informal and accessible to anyone – maybe a friend or colleague – who might be interested in discovering the sorts of topics we discuss, and why. I hope most of our ‘regulars’ will agree to chat briefly about their ‘faith journeys’ and how their views have (or perhaps haven’t?) been influenced by contemporary biblical scholarship. To allow time for discussion, there will be a strict time-limit on individual presentations! Also, I’m delighted to report that Rev. Dr Lorraine Parkinson (remember Made on Earth?) has agreed to give us a run-down on Melbourne’s Progressive Christianity community.
Assuming no lock-downs in the mean time, we’ll gather on Monday 7th February in the Activities Room at Azure Blue Retirement Centre (91 Anzac Ave., Redcliffe) from 6 p.m., commencing with a chat and tea or coffee. The Centre management requires us all to provide evidence of full Covid vaccination, and the usual arrangements of mask-wearing, hand-sanitising etc. will apply.
If you’re planning to come along but aren’t a regular at our gatherings, it would be advisable to give me a call on 0401 513 723 about access and parking arrangements at Azure Blue.
