It all seems new. And it is.

“I love your new boss” was said to me numerous times after Pope Francis’ election to the papacy in March 2013. Often the remark was made by someone who did not share my Catholic faith; often, too, by someone under thirty. To this day, there’s a freshness and vibrancy in Francis’ leadership of the church.

During the past week I have visited and been part of the Newcastle Islamic Centre at Mayfield, joining with them and others in our Interfaith initiatives. Just over a week ago they hosted an information evening in which they shared their faith with us. Those who wished, were then invited to join them for prayer on Monday afternoon or night and then on Thursday they hosted the United Nations International Day of Peace.

I spent much of last week in Melbourne, at the National Pastoral Leaders and Planners Conference. There were about 200 people there from across Australia and New Zealand. I was blessed to receive the words, inspiration and passion of so many wonderful presenters, and in turn I have wondered what I might share with you in this week’s message.

Law and social change

September 06, 2017 Comments Bishop Bill Wright

If you’re excited by legal changes that have social and moral significance, these are exciting times. There has not been so much on the political agenda, I’d say, since the ‘seventies. Then, having got past the Vietnam War, we seemed quite suddenly to have a raft of social change legislation.

Gifts come in all shapes, sizes and forms. Some delight in the kind that comes in brown paper packages tied up with string.
