    Responding to Domestic Violence in the Church - with Sandy Grant and Kara Hartley

    Responding to Domestic Violence in the Church - with Sandy Grant and Kara Hartley

    Sandy Grant and Kara Hartley,  who lead the Sydney Anglican Church’s response to domestic violence, are expressing lament and grief at the findings of new national report into intimate partner violence within church communities.
    The new report into Domestic Violence in the Australian Anglican Church indicates the number of people who are at least occasional Anglican church attenders and are victims of intimate partner violence is the same as or higher than in the wider Australian community. 
    Other key findings include:
    Evidence that Perpetrators misuse Christian teachings and positional power,Clergy reporting their confidence in their personal capacity to respond to IPV as low to moderate,Our leaders are well informed about the breadth of intimate partner violence and that it is more men than women who commit the violence,While many Anglican victims did not seek support from Anglican church, those that did were helped/felt supported.There are three aspects to the report:
    A research report on the prevalence of domestic violence, A survey of key clergy and lay leaders,The experiences of family violence of those with a connection with Anglican Churches. Contacts:
    1800 RESPECT - A 24 hour national sexual assault, family and domestic counselling line.
    Lifeline 131114 - For anyone across Australia who is experiencing a personal crisis or thinking about suicide.
    Further discussions:
    Caring pastorally for domestic abuse victims - Jenni Woodhouse

    ‘The Homogenous Unit Principle’ - all you need to know with David Williams

    ‘The Homogenous Unit Principle’ - all you need to know with David Williams

    The Homogeneous Unit Principle suggests that outreach is most effective when carried out in the context of a discrete group defined by similarity in cultural background. 

    But David Williams says the mission world's view today is that it's bad in practice and theory. 
    Dr David Williams is the Director of Development and Training for CMS Australia and Principal of the missionary training college St Andrews Hall in Melbourne. 
    Plus we talk the impact of COVID on the raising up and the sending out of missionaries.

    The religious freedom flashpoint - with Freedom for Faith’s Patrick Parkinson

    The religious freedom flashpoint - with Freedom for Faith’s Patrick Parkinson

    Religious Freedom is being increasingly marginalised in Australia and across the western world.
    There’s freedom for worship, freedom of speech, freedom of association and freedom of conscience.
    Australia’s Morrison government was moving to protect religious freedoms.  But all this was put on hold by last year’s pandemic. 
    Freedom for Faith’s Chair Professor Patrick Parkinson talks with Dominic Steele about his hopes for bipartisan legislation.
    Plus there’s a call for all Christians to be involved in this weekend’s Religious Freedom Weekend.

    Judging the Macquaries - Peter Adam

    Judging the Macquaries - Peter Adam

    In reconciliation week we turn our attention to Colonial Australia and a new book out from John Harris, ‘Judging the Macquaries’ - with Peter Adam
    The Black Lives Matter movement is bringing the characters of powerful people in colonial times into sharp focus, particularly their attitudes and actions towards slavery and indigenous peoples. 
    Lachlan and Elizabeth Macquarie are among those being scrutinised and reassessed.
    John Harris paints a more spiritually positive picture of Governor Lachlan Macquarie than had previously been understood.  His wife Elizabeth Macquarie was a clear evangelical.  Lachlan Macquarie’s Christian faith causes him to stand out in significant policy areas from the dominant views of the time: in his attitudes, behaviour and policies relating to both convicts and indigenous persons.

    The picture of Macquarie is in sharp contrast to his chief antagonist Rev Samuel Marsden.  The book caused me to reassess the more positive view of Marsden that I argued in 2015 (http://bit.ly/steele-on-marsden).
    The Former Principal of Ridley Theological College Melbourne Peter Adam is one of the foremost voices in this space in Australian Christianity and he is delighted with Harris’ new work.
