Teaching and Leading from Within

If you are familiar with the work of Parker Palmer you may be interested in this retreat being run at Mittagong in New South Wales. There are more details about is right here.

You might also be interested in having a look at the Centre for Courage and Renewal. There are resources for clergy, leaders and educators (not that these three categories are mutually exclusive).

Traffik Free Easter

Much of the chocolate in Easter Eggs (in Australia as well as overseas), is made with cocoa from plantations on the Ivory Coast, West Africa, that use trafficked children as young as 10 years old as labour.

Today we're inviting you to join in 4 simple actions you can take to help make this Easter a #traffikfreeEaster. 

1. Sign the petition. Let your voice be heard loud and clear with this petition to Coles and Woolworths asking them to double their Easter range for next year: Add your name here

2. Look out for Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or UTZ Certification logos on your chocolate this Easter. Or check out the Good Egg Guide to help in your shopping.

3. Pray with us this Easter that human trafficking will STOP.

4. Check out the Schools Resource Packs

The Anglican Church of Southern Queensland is a member of Stop the Traffik’s Australian coalition.
