We are fast approaching our last public forum for 2011. This will be on a Friday evening to accommodate our speaker, renowned expert on sustainability, Professor Peter Newman. Peter is from Western Australia but will be in Sydney to attend a meeting of the Board of Infrastructure Australia. We are so fortunate that he has agreed to extend his stay out East so he could speak to us at CES.
Topic: Sustainability and Climate Change Some Ethical Reflections
Peter preaches a theology of hope in the future. Come along and be inspired or challenged. Bring your own questions and join in the Q and A after Peter's talk.
When: 7.30 pm Friday 25 November
Where: Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture
Chair: Rev Gregor Henderson. This will be the last time Gregor will chair our forums wearing the hat of CES President. We have been really delighted that he has supported us as President for the last two years and I am sure we will continue to see him at many future forums.
Cost: If you are in a position to give a $5 donation, that would help us cover the cost of the venue. Supper will be provided.

can be found from our website. Just
