Tonight and tomorrow, Lake Joondalup Baptist Church is hosting their “Rock the Boats…Some More” seminar, their second seminar focussing on everyday ethics for everyday Christians. Sessions will address topics of asylum seekers and refugees, homelessness, Ethical Purchasing, the Environment, the upcoming Election and more. Speakers include Scott Higgins from A Just Cause, Eliza Johnson from Baptist World Aid, and Troy Pickard, Mayor of the City of Joondalup. I will be starting the seminar with a 15-minute spot addressing the questions: “What is Christian ethics? How Do We Think? How Should We Behave?” Fifteen minutes! The seminar is free to attend, at Lake Joondalup Baptist College Auditorium, 8 Kennedya Drive, Joondalup. It starts tonight at 7pm and on Saturday morning at 9am.
The other event is The Secular Juggernaut, hosted by City Bible Forum, a ministry dedicated to bearing witness to Christ in the CBD. The event is the 2016 Smith Lecture given by Roy Williams, author of God, Actually and Post-God Nation. The event begins with canapes and drinks at 5:30pm on Thursday May 26, followed by the lecture and Q&A at 6:30pm. The event is being held at the Atrium Theatrette, 168 St. George’s Terrace (cnr. King St.), Perth. Cost is $40, $180 for groups of five. I had planned to go until I realised I am booked to speak elsewhere. Williams will address the topic: “Christianity is perceived by more Australians than ever as implausible, undesirable or irrelevant. Why is it so? Does it matter?”
