On this eve of Anzac Day, which commemorates Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, Dr Neville will speak on peace, hope, violence and war.
Christianity is often projected as a religion of violence or a religion that justifies war. However, an examination of the New Testament reveals the “non-violent Jesus”. This forum will seek to encourage discussion from the floor. A $5 donation would be appreciated.
