Religion and Justice: Uncomfortable partners or Natural allies? A presentation by Rev Rod Bower, Rector of Gosford Anglican parish and social activist
9 Nov 2019
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Metropolitan Community Church
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.”
Father Rod Bower is a passionate advocate for social justice and human rights, including climate change and marriage equality. Archdeacon for Justice Ministries and Chaplaincy in the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle, he believes that our treatment of Asylum Seekers, the lack of action on climate change and the failure to adequately recognise First Nations people damages our corporate
soul. He ran as a NSW Senate candidate in the 2019 Federal Election for the Independents For Climate Action Now.
Cost: $15 / $10 Concession (pay at the door). Free for current Eremos members.
