PL event with John Dickson- report

I have read most of John’s books and seen many of the Centre for Public Christianity videos, but John brought a different perspective to his presentation for the AARE professional learning function in March. He gave a thought provoking insight into Australia’s unique approach to the message of Christ. Although we often oppose authority, tradition and institution, a unique ‘Australianised Christianity’ has emerged in our low church attending culture. Surveys may well suggest that far fewer of us belong to traditional Church institutions than earlier times, but that does necessarily mean we have abandoned God. John delivered an impressive presentation with his depth of thought, passion, and entertaining style.
