" ... These ought ye to have done ..." : a commentary on the church in the world today. /

by Tucker, G. [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).

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).

Freedom of religion and belief in 21st century Australia /

by Bouma, Gary | Australian Human Rights Commission | Cahill, Desmond | Dellal, Hass | Zwartz, Athalia.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Australian Human Rights Commission 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : pp. 84-85Summary: This research report has responded to the aims of the NAP in 'fostering connections and understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims'. But, considering that other previous and current work has focused specifically on Muslim communities, this research has taken a broader approach. It researched and documents the general issues and concerns of religious and non-religious communities in Australia, principally based on direct consultation with the Australian people. Data from the face-to-face consultations and written submissions provided a valuable perspective on religion in general and religious groups in Australia.Availability: (1)

God, people and resources : a Christian comment on the values of Australian society / the Second G. T. Sambell Memorial Oration delivered by The Right Reverend Oliver Heyward, M.A.

by Heyward, Oliver | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Companions of St Laurence 1982Description: 11 p PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Occasional Paper — Companions of St Laurence — 1982"- Front Cover Delivered on 5 December 1982 at the 52nd Foundation Festival of the Brotherhood of St LaurenceSummary: During the past 10 years there has been a significant change in the values of Australian society. This has probably been caused by a complex mix of events which include the long period of economic boom which ended in the mid-seventies. With that came big advances in technology, producing a confidence in the capacity of human beings not only to manage their own affairs, but to control the world in which we live. This coincided with a period in which the Church lost confidence in its message and ceased to speak with certainty as increasing numbers of people felt that they had no need of belief in God.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (3).

The unintended reformation : how a religious revolution secularized society /

by Gregory, Brad S.

Publisher: Cambridge, MA The Belknap Press of the Harvard University Press 2012Description: 574 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and indexSummary: In a work that is as much about the present as the past, Brad Gregory identifies the unintended consequences of the Protestant Reformation and traces the way it shaped the modern condition over the course of the following five centuries. A hyperpluralism of religious and secular beliefs, an absence of any substantive common good, the triumph of capitalism and its driver, consumerism - all these, Gregory argues, were long-term effects of a movement that marked the end of more than a millennium during which Christianity provided a framework for shared intellectual, social, and moral life in the West. ; Contents: Introduction : the world we have lost? -- Excluding God -- Relativizing doctrines -- Controlling the churches -- Subjectivizing morality -- Manufacturing the goods life -- Secularizing knowledge -- Conclusion : against nostalgiaAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Us and them : interfaith relations and cultural harmony in Australia /

by Ata, Abe W.

Publisher: Bowen Hills, Qld. Australian Academic Press 2009Description: viii, 178 p.: ill. graphs.Other title: Us and them: Muslim-Christian relations and cultural harmony.Summary: Cross-cultural research provides exceptional insights into the hopes and fears of dealing with people different to ourselves. In Australia, such research suggests that Australian Muslims have surpassed Asians as one of the country's most marginalised religious and ethnic groups. Muslims and people from the Middle East are thought to be unable to fit into Australia, with more than 50% of Australians preferring their relatives did not to marry into a Muslim family. Yet this statistic masks diverse interpretations of interfaith relations and cultural harmony present across Australia today. In 12 essays Us and Them offers truths about interfaith relations as they are believed and expressed by Muslim and non-Muslim Australians. The essays are interdisciplinary and varied in topic, and seek to challenge the images of Islam held by both xenophobic Westerners and extremist Muslims. Drawn from a variety of research projects over past years, including results from a national survey on attitudes towards Islam and Muslims among Australian secondary students, they also raise thematic questions, such as: Will any dialogue lead to a rapprochement between the Muslim and mainstream communities? What is Christian-Muslim diversity? Why does it matter? Can we really learn how to manage diversity in the workplace? Can the Shari'a law coexist with the Australian legal system on issues including polygamy, marital status and dress?Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
