The introduction of buffel grass to Central Australia fuels fires that burn too hot, destroying what they once renewed.  These burned-out hills have a sadness about them, but also a strange beauty.

When all is not well, listening to place, and the people of place, is painful. But we need to be grounded in the difficult real for life to spring up into the future. And so, when all is not well, we need to listen out for prophetic voices saying the unwelcome true thing.

Celia will draw from Scripture, First Nations and other desert voices and country itself to speak about prophets, wilderness and the state of the Australian soul. There will be time for personal reflection and small group sharing.

Celia’s presentation will begin approximately 2:45 AEDT after the AGM.

This event is open to all and free for Eremos members or $15/$10 (conc) for non members. Bookings essential  or register here (click on purchase tickets) or by email to events@eremos.org.au no later than 20th October. If you email, please include your name, location, and phone number.

There is no fee for Eremos members registering if you are logged in.

All registrants will be sent a link the week before.
