This Wednesday, we gather to pray in our capital cities for Aboriginal deaths in custody.
The 26th of September will be the anniversary of Wayne Fella Morrison’s death in custody. Wayne Fella is the brother of a dear friend of Brooke, and his story is one of the unfathomable 147 Aboriginal deaths in custody from just the last 10 years.
Aboriginal deaths in custody have been researched, and reported, since 1980. In 1991 Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody handed down its report. This Royal Commission investigated 99 Aboriginal deaths in custody from 1980 to 1991. Since 1991 there had been an additional 407 Aboriginal deaths in custody. In the last week we added another three to this total, taking it to now 510 Aboriginal lives lost in custody.
We think of a God of love yet is that what we see in the Old Testament and perhaps in our lives doesn’t stack up to that. What are we to make of it.
Come and hear prominent UK Theologican and Biblical Scholar Christopher Wright speak on this topic and answer questions. This forum will be in the Cathedral.
There is also a seminar in the evening on preaching from the Old Testament in 121 Macquarie St at 7.30pm.
Christopher J. H. Wright is an Anglican clergyman and an Old Testament scholar. He is currently the International Ministries Director of Langham Partnership International. He was the principal of All Nations Christian College. He is the author of many books including Living as the People of God, and The God I Don’t Understand.

Christianity was born in Palestine over 2,000 years ago yet many are unaware that Christians still live in the Holy Land, maintaining the ancient traditions at the heart of their faith in increasingly difficult times. For the past 70 years, Palestinian Christians have suffered displacement, expulsion, wars, occupation and oppression. Their voices are often drowned out in the turmoil of events. This is their story, in their voices, from the Nakba of 1948 until today.
Samya Jabbour is a Palestinian Christian woman born in Western Australia; she lived for several years in Hobart.
Ayman Qwaider is the co-founder of Gaza Children’s Cinema, a Palestinian initiative bringing cinema to the children of Gaza.
Film director, Yasmine Perni, is donating funds for the sale of DVDs of The Stones Cry Out to Gaza Children’s Cinema.
Like alchemy, the rich sounds of the TSO Brass and the spacious surrounds of St David’s Cathedral combine to deliver a concert experience of rare and resonant beauty. From honeyed horns to brilliant trumpets, ceremonial trombones to deep-toned tuba, the TSO Brass present a world of instrumental colours, each one distinct yet perfectly blended when combined as an ensemble.
