by Challen, Michael B.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Melbourne University Publishing 2008Description: xvi, 245 p.: ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references, p. 227-230, and index. 2 copiesSummary: Geoffrey Tremayne Sambell, Archbishop of Perth from 1969-1980, was a man of vast vision, undoubted convictions and determination who gained international repute throughout the Anglican Communion. He began his ministry in the inner suburbs of Melbourne, professionalising penal and hospital chaplaincies, advancing the Church's commitment to social welfare and justice as director of the Brotherhood of St. Laurence, and marshalling resources for the Church to move into the new suburbs. He worked incessantly to transform the loose federation of 27 Anglican dioceses into a 'national Church' and to deepen its relationships with Asia. His lifelong understanding that every 'cell' of the Church was to be mutually responsible, locally and globally, led to his appointment as a foundation member of the Anglican Consultative Council, reporting directly to the Archbishop of Canterbury. He actively related his work to the world and its political realities, through personal relationships and advocacy organisations such as the Victorian and Australian Councils of Social Services. The Australian Government appointed him foundation chair of its National Consultative Council of Social Welfare. Throughout all these ministries, Sambell lived life to the full, characteristically a man of few words but unreservedly a man of the Word -- Book jacket.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

Always say yes : the life of David Scott / [David Scott with] Carrie Hutchinson.

by Scott, David, 1925-2012 [author.] | Hutchinson, Carrie [author.].

Publisher: Crows Nest, NSW : Pier 9, Allen & Unwin, 2014Description: xi, 252 pages, 16 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (some colour), portraits ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes index.Summary: "Always Say Yes" is the fascinating account of the life of one of Australia's giants of social policy. 'I was 13 when I decided what I wanted to do in life was travel and have adventures, be of some use to other people, and have a family. Life worked out pretty much as I hoped.' Born into middle-class poverty in the 1920s, David Scott was on course for a corporate career until his uncle, Father Gerard Tucker, invited him to become part of The Brotherhood of St Laurence. Scott went on to become the director of the Brotherhood turning it into the most significant agency for social welfare in Australia. He also formed Community Aid Abroad (now Oxfam) and played a leading role in galvanising support for the East Timorese people when Indonesia invaded. Always Say Yes follows Scott's life and accomplishments and celebrates one of our giants of social policy. David Scott was born in Melbourne, where he attended Melbourne Grammar School. After leaving school early he joined the Argus newspaper while waiting to join the Navy. He became a member of the gun crew on the destroyer HMAS Arunta during the Second World War and was involved in numerous Pacific campaigns. He and his wife, Diana, had three children. Scott was described in his obituary as 'one of Australia's giants of social welfare and social policy'.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (4).
