A Home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God

August 25, 2021 Daniel Lee Chun Wei

Take a deep breath and hold it. Keep holding. Hold on until you run out of breath!

Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor

August 10, 2021 Dr Sandie Cornish

Right now, the Earth and the poor are calling out for help, and we cannot ignore this call. Whether it be bushfires across our country, flooding rains flowing into our towns and cities, rising sea levels pushing our neighbours from their lands, prolonged and extreme droughts destroying crops, stock and livelihoods, or the extinction of thousands of native animals, the call to listen to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor has never been louder.
