Description

Power of the Here and Now: 'An interdisciplinary dialogue on walking the talk’

Emeritus Professor Lewis Lancaster joins Reverend Bill Crews AM at the University of Sydney for an evening of insights and storytelling, as they share how their experiences and work have led to their own personal transformations.

Topics for Discussion

  • Inner transformation
    With courage and transformation, both distinguished speakers explain how, they were able to overcome the binds that once tied them and how they uncovered their authentic “selves.”
  • Insights through service
    How they worked through their domains of service, to become aware, offer compassion, understand human nature and how they faced their religious service with honesty.
  • The Church and the University
    As these traditional institutional structures face major crises that threaten their continued survival in the form we know today, can they be reshaped to survive into the future?
  • Social action
    An interfaith discussion highlighting how two different religions view social action.
