On Sunday night 30/07/17 at 9pm James Garth (ISCASTian and rocket scientist) will be speaking on Light FM with Rob Martin on "Is There More Than This?". James says the show "touches on faith, dealing with doubt, Aquinas, Heisenberg, and gently putting the boot into Stephen Hawking ;)"
A Climate of Justice: Loving your neighbour in a warming world, is the second book by ecotheologian and ISCAST Fellow, Mick Pope. It examines the link between justice issues like slavery, foreign aid, refugee and asylum seekers, and closing the gap on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples health and life expectancy, and climate change. It does so through the framework of the Parable of the Good Samaritan view as a parable of justice.
ISCAST Executive Director Chris Mulherin returned recently from Perth where he gave various talks for Claremont Baptist Church, Scripture Union WA, Christ Church Grammar School (CCGS), and a combined Baptist Churches Youth event. His talks included a number on science and faith issues as well as addressing all the staff at CCGS and taking a school philosophy class. Copies of the talks and/or slides are available on request.
