26 King William Road, Wayville

Event details

At the heart of Christian ethics, is the call to embody God’s vision for our world, seen so fully expressed in the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this session, we explore the source of this passionate commitment - its Biblical and theological foundations and the praxis of the Uniting Church in Australia. Participants will be invited to reflect on the source of their engagement and we will explore the narratives of hope which sustain our actions for love, justice, liberation and peace in our world today.

Dr Deidre Palmer served as President of the Uniting Church in Australia from 2018 - 2021. Her theme as President was “Abundant Grace, Liberating Hope”. She continues to listen for the narratives of liberating hope and believes the church is at its best, when its community life and engagement in the world is shaped by the generous hospitality and abundant love of God.
Deidre is a renowned educator having taught at the Adelaide College of Divinity, Uniting College and Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Deidre is also a social worker having previously worked with Uniting Communities as a counsellor with their Childhood Sexual Abuse Counselling team, prior to becoming Moderator of the Synod of South Australia.
