Manna Matters November 2022

We are going to have a go at a Q&A column for Manna Matters. Are there any questions that have been bugging you that you would like us to have a go at? Email them in, and we'll see what we can do!

I have been busier with speaking engagements over the last few months. The standout was a two-week trip to WA organised by Tearfund and Amos Australia. I spoke almost every day, covering topics such as “the whole gospel”, “good news for the poor”, “economic witness” and “the vocation of God's people”. A personal highlight was taking part in Perth's famous and long-standing urban mission intensive week, AMUC. It was great to make some new connections and new friends amongst the Tearfund and Amos networks in WA. Tearfund (formerly TEAR Australia) will be well-known to Manna Matters readers; Amos is like a smaller Perth-based version of Tearfund pursuing impressive grassroots development partnerships in Indonesia, East Timor and Cambodia. Check them out:

The rest of my speaking engagements were with churches, some in person and some over Zoom, mostly around a biblical vision of ecology. Get in contact if you would like me to speak at your church.
