Event Details

Two-Faced, Two Ways
History shows relationships with First Australians have been two-faced. There is another way.

What sort of relationship do we all want and need with the First Australians? How can we heal together, and progress from an infantile relationship to one more positive?

The Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle, The Right Reverend Greg Thompson, spent seven years as Bishop of the Northern Territory, and previously 10 years working in community organisations and parish ministries in the 'top end'.

In the Morpeth Lecture Bishop Greg will reflect on his experiences in the Territory as he explores the concepts of ‘closing the gap’ and reconciliation for First Australians.

He argues that leadership isn’t always about knowing the answers, but about working together to find a common pathway and move forward.

The Morpeth Lecture was established in 1967 to celebrate the partnership between the University of Newcastle and the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle. The name of the Morpeth Lecture comes from the College of St John the Evangelist at Morpeth, the previous ministry training and education centre of the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle.

Theology is a degree for people who want to make a difference. Learn more about Theology at UON.
