Roundup: Wesley Mission’s report, Murray Darling follow-up submission, religion in society, punk rock and Christopher Lasch
In its latest report, Wesley Mission has found families make up a quarter to a third of Australia’s homeless population.
A growing number of Australian families are being left homeless because of a shortage of rental homes and public housing, a study released today has found.
In March, Board of Mission staff Ross Neville (Rural Evangelism and Mission Consultant), Kel Hodge (Rural Chaplain) and Julie Greig (Rural Chaplain) appeared before the Windsor Inquiry into the Murray Darling Basin Plan. They have now made a follow-up submission, drawing upon discussions held at more than a dozen locations across the Synod.
Unlike most “progressive” thinkers, the Blue Labour movement sees tradition – including religious tradition – as an important part of common life.
Limits and hope. That’s how Christopher Lasch, the genius social historian and cultural critic, once summed up his philosophy: limits and hope.
