Wondering if there are better ways to deal with religious and cultural diversity? If part of God's mission for the church is to discern where God is already at action in the community around us then that's something worth wondering about!
Here are the details of a program being run by Griffith Uni's Centre for Interfaith and Cultural Dialogue and Believing Women for a Culture of Peace. You can download a flyer here.
Engaging with Religious & Cultural Diversity
Friday 25 – Sunday 27 September, 2015

Active in interfaith work for over 30 years, she is a
