"Occasional Paper - Companions of St Laurence - 1989" - Front cover Delivered on 3rd December, 1989 at the 59th Foundation Festival of the Brotherhood of St Laurence

I wrote this lecture during the pilots’ strike and wrote it in Western Australia which was at that time a State of crisis as charge and counter-charge flew and every day brought some yet more extraordinary revelation of relations between Government and business. To say this, however, is not mere anecdote, a way of beginning. Rather, it is our beginning. It poses our question and defines our task. For the crisis issue is not just West Australian, it is Australian and perhaps also, more generally, Western. But our concern is at the moment with Australia. Mindful of one of Blake’s wisest sayings, “to generalise is to be an idiot”, let us focus, however, on a very specific issue: the fate of that Christian commitment to justice which was exemplified in Geoffrey Sambell whom we honour this evening.
