This blog offers an Australian perspective on faith, religion and spirituality. It invites you to join the joys and hope, the grief and anguish of a middle aged Aussie Catholic.
The material reflects my interest in global as well as local issues.My perspective is probably more quirky than orthodox.
What is the Church’s role in the lives of individuals and families who no longer turn to it as the center of their social and family structure? What is the Church’s role in a world that increasingly sees it as irrelevant or even antithetical to human progress? What is the Church’s role in the lives of the people who continue to return to it as a source of strength, inspiration, solace and connection with God? What is the Church’s role in the lives of the people who have never walked through one of our doors and those who have sworn they never will again?
Our answers to these questions matter. Will the Church “die”? What about resurrection? Is there a clear line between the two or are they both happening simultaneously before our eyes?
Please join us at Hold fast Saint Andrew's as we explore the role of the church today.
Each week we will gather together to share in a meal, engage in honest conversation about questions that matter, and finish around the table of our Lord.
Everyone is invited to bring along something simple to share at the dinner table.
