The Newcastle Lawyers’ Christian fellowship is running another of our breakfast meetings for lawyers (and other interested folk!) in Newcastle, on Wednesday 14 June 2023, from 7:30-8:30 am. Our venue will once again be the Moot Court with-the-best-views-of-a-harbour (aka Room X-703) in the NuSpace Building, the University of Newcastle (corner of Hunter St and Auckland St). We are glad to welcome David Robertson back to speak about what the ancient Hebrew Book of Job can tell us about wanting God to speak in the midst of suffering.
No matter what our occupation or where we’re from, we’re all familiar with suffering. The enigmatic 3,000 year old man Job & his story of suffering must rank as one of the most gut-wrenching, eye-watering tales in the great catalogue of human misery down the centuries. Join Newcastle City Legal presenter David Robertson as he brings this ancient story to life – and shows us the surprising comfort it offers.
More information is available here, where you can also register. Cost is $5 (which includes a coffee) or $10 for pastries for breakfast.
I should also mention that I will be speaking at the upcoming City Legal National Conference in Canberra on 24-25 August, on ‘The Ethics of Freedom: Religious Freedom in the Workplace’. This Seminar is one of the 2 CPD points on offer at the Conference in the areas of Ethics & Professional Responsibility along with Practice Management & Business Skills. See Conference Brochure here. There will also be great speakers like Max Jeganathan, John Bales, Dan Anderson & Wilbur Longbottom. More details and Conference Rego are available here.
