The University of Divinity is proud to lend its support to the “Yes” campaign for the referendum to be held later this year on amending the Australian Constitution to create a Voice to Parliament. The University supports a comprehensive, national response to the invitation of the Uluru Statement From the Heart, including the call for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution, and for a Makarrata Commission.
The University of Divinity presents the Professorial Lecture of Professor Anne Pattel-Gray who will share her insights into Australia’s First Nations religious and spiritual beliefs and practices that form the core of her theology.
She will explain how we are all held captive by our colonial heritage and that our theological education and institutions require liberation in order to be set free.
She will further explain the process to decolonise biblical and theological narratives and challenge Christians to become the radical change that is so desperately needed to transform a Nation.
Australian Intercultural Society will host a live webinar on Youtube with the topic, Prayer, Patience and Pandemic. Panellists include Dr Mashrreed Ansari of the Islamic Sciences and Research Academy, Rev. De Colleen O’Reilly – Chaplain to Trinity College, and Moderator Dr Duleyha Keskin of Islamic Sciences and Research Academy, Charles Sturt University. The webinar takes place on the evening of Monday, 27 July, 2020.
