One of the things I really like doing is speaking - underwater with a mouthful of marbles if need be. Apart from my day job that involves me presenting material, I get asked to speak at conferences, churches and so on. Most recently I spoke at the Ethos conference in Melbourne, where the invited speakers were  Sylvia Keesmaat and Brian Walsh. My workshop was on the groaning of creation in Romans 8, and what that might mean for an ecotheology/ecomissiology.

Then, I went to the TEAR gathering in Helensburgh (south of Sydney), which again featured Keesmaat and Walsh. This time, it was a workshop on talking about climate change in the church. I may work on a booklet (pdf) to download when I have more time.

Finally, I got to speak at a Franciscan Conference at Trinity College here in Melbourne, again on climate change and theological reflection.

I'm usually useless at emailing people my slides so I've decided to use Slideshare to upload them. The links follow. Note that they can be downloaded.

Groaning with creation
Communicating for change
A changing climate
