Eremos End of Year Gathering and AGM 2019
Religion and Justice: Uncomfortable partners or Natural allies?
A presentation by Rev Rod Bower at the Annual Eremos Gathering.
Enjoy a stimulating address and discussion with Father Rod Bower, Rector of Gosford Anglican parish, and social activist. Rod’s expresses his broad approach to living our faith: “I want to see the church speak out and be a voice for people society has forgotten or ignores. In my opinion the gospel impels us to act for justice and that’s the church I want to be part of.”
