Who are we to judge Matt Lodge or Barnaby Joyce?

Brisbane

Tonight, rugby league kicks off for another year and Brisbane is buzzing. Not because the first game is Brisbane v St George, but because Matt Lodge is running on to Kogarah oval for the first time as prop for Brisbane. Matt is a gifted player. He’s also a player who pleaded guilty for a violent rampage while on holiday in New York. The buzz? Should such a person be allowed to play football professionally? Is this a chance of redemption, or a miscarriage of justice?

The difference hope makes

Hope can change the future, and it can change our experience of now

In Shawshank Redemption, Red tells Andy - 'Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.' Andy's reply decades later is 'Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things.'

Which is it? Do we need to hope? Or should we give up on hope?

In eastern thought hope is the illusion that keeps us suffering, western thought holds out hope for hope. But why what difference does hope make?

The Difference

Tuesday November 21st, 1.30pm to 2.20pm
Alt

Hope can fuel change. Hope can change the future. The future can be different because of hope. Hope keeps our eyes on the light when all about us is darkness. But not everything we hope in does this.

Come along and consider the difference hope makes.

We'd love you to join us whether you are a believer, secular, sceptical, from another religion, or just curious.

City Forums run as a short presentation followed by discussion. Come just to listen or come to be part of the discussion.

Our speaker is Glenn Hohnberg.

Chasing life: Chasing eternity

Success in life is largely about timing.

Success in life is largely about timing. But knowing the exact right time to do anything takes great insight and wisdom.

This frustration in life pushes us beyond the simple enjoyment of life of the animals to truly achieve. But why is life like that?

Scott shares from Ecclesiastes 3 about why we've been made the way that we have.

Chasing life: Working hard

What is the point of work? Does it define us? Is work good or is it just toil?

What is the point of work?

When we introduce ourselves we often say - I'm a lawyer, teacher, engineer, but does our work define us?

Is fulfilment found in our work or elsewhere?

Is work good or is it just toil?

Listen to what the ancient philosopher of Ecclesiastes has to say

Chasing life: Pursuing pleasure

Conventional wisdom says life is about minimising pain and maximising pleasure - but what if pleasure lets us down?

Conventional wisdom says life is about minimising pain and maximising pleasure - but what if pleasure lets us down?

Glenn explores how true pleasure is found in our work, and not in its fruit. And all this by God's wise provision...

Chasing life: Searching for meaning

Where do we find meaning in life? Will I have significance?

Where do we find meaning in life?

Will I have significance?

Is life more than just the accidents of biology, chemistry and physics?

What wisdom can a 3000 year old text lend to our situation?

Scott explores the ancient wisdom of the Preacher of Ecclesiastes as we start our journey towards meaning in our Chasing Life city forums from 2017.

Chasing life: a soul's search for meaning

Come and consider life. We chase life and search for meaning. Will the things we are chasing give us life?
