This is a very hurried post as Tom & I are just about to head to Camano Island for our Celtic retreat. It comes from an email sent to me by Bruce Hulme who lives in Adelaide Australia. I thought that many of you might find it interesting.
Last night there was a significant documentary by Australian entrepreneur and adventurer, Dick Smith, followed by a panel discussion on a regular show called “q and a”, around what Smith calls ‘the elephant in the room’ – population growth in Australia.
We are one week out from a federal election, so the timing of this was pretty interesting.
It will give you a good taste of the scene in Australia around this significant issue, and might be a good , especially for Aussie readers who missed it. This issue is certainly increasingly in the forefront of Australian’s conscience. I think it also has some interesting theological implications, not least around stewardship, hospitality and the theology of family and fertility
So my question is “What does this have to do with theology?
