Leadership and vision in social action : when the dream expires, can the vision revive? / The Eighth G.T. Sambell Memorial Oration delivered by The Right Reverend Robert Dann

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Dann, Robert.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. G. T. Sambell Memorial Trust 1988Description: 17 p. PDF.Other title: The Sambell Memorial Oration.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Occasional Paper - Companions of St Laurence - 1988" - Front cover Delivered on 27 November 1988 at the 58th Foundation Festival of the Brotherhood of St Laurence.Summary: These words compress in a startling way what most have experienced: the dramatic dichotomy between vision and action. The cost in loving might ultimately stop us in our tracks, if, for no other reason we are exhausted, we have had enough. But the dream its e lf may falter and fa il. Where, then, are we to find the fresh springs of action? I am sure Dostoevsky did not discount the significance and essential value of the dreaming. Everyone committed and engaged in welfare in our society must dream, and do their dreaming well, if they are to be of use. This truth applies to the individual with a vocation to help even one person; it applies equally and with accumulated force to any welfare organisation which aspires to influence. Browning understood the priority of the dream when he wrote: "A man's vision must exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?" Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

"Lucky St George" or "Knowing what it is" : Christianity and the current crisis / The Nineth G.T. Sambell Memorial Oration delivered by Dr Veronica Brady

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Brady, Veronica.

Publisher: Fitzroy, vic G.T. Sambell Memorial Trust 1989Description: 12 p. PDF.Other title: Lucky St George or Knowing what it is : Christianity and the current crisis.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Occasional Paper - Companions of St Laurence - 1989" - Front cover Delivered on 3rd December, 1989 at the 59th Foundation Festival of the Brotherhood of St LaurenceSummary: 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.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

by Tucker, Gerard Kennedy | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. 1963Description: 8 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "Man's extremity is God's opportunity." We are at the extremity of our resources to save ourselves and mankind. The Church has an opportunity as never before vouchsafed to her. Given the grace to follow to its logical conclusion the Gospel we preach, we would be enabled to give the world a new hope and a new vision and those outside the Church whom we fail to attract would learn to know that the Plan laid down for the salvation of mankind, here and hereafter is the only plan that really counts. The whole future of the world depends on those who are alive today and above all on those who profess and call themselves Christians. This could be our "finest hour", It could be a second Pentecost.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
