June 2017: 'Can Theology of Gender be Dangerous?; Domestic Violence and the Church'.

June 2017: N.S.W's Premiers Iftar Dinner. It was an honour to get invited by the Honourable Gladys Berejiklian MP to the 2017 Iftar dinner at Parliament House Sydney.

I had a great night, and met some fun people. Inter religious dialogue is one of the most important things that we can do in today's world. We need to respectfully support, honour and celebrate each other in our faith. Most religions hinge on love, mercy, grace and the dignity of the human person - especially those who are marginalised. It was wonderful to see over 200 leaders from around Australia from different faiths and backgrounds breaking bread together, in love, laughter, friendship and supporting the common good.

 

May 2017 - IDAHOT - Rev Tiffany and Simon Tinkler represent for Progressive Christianity!
 Brisbane City IDAHOT celebrations and memorial for those who have been effected by hate and homophobia.
 










Progressive Christianity is egalitarian and believes that all are equal and loved by God, no matter our gender and sexuality. Our gender and sexuality is not a religious issue, however, it becomes one when we use gender and sexuality to exclude, propagate prejudice and marginalised people. This violence is not the way of God, but rather of humanity. I look forward to the day where no one lives in fear. Until then, it is important to let people know that there are safe places where people will be honoured and accepted.

January 2017: 'Sparks Fly at Anglican Church' The Point Magazine. Multiculturalism NSW.
See what they did there? I really enjoyed this interview and I think Kavita did a fantastic job with putting it together. Questions on Progressive Christianity, views on scripture and experiences in life. Thanks to The Point for doing such a great job! 

October 2016: Digi "Engage" forum. Courtesy of DIGI and the Australian Government, this forum was held in Melbourne was a fantastic initiative for young people to engage (excuse the pun) with role models and people working in multicultural and religious spheres. I was delighted to be invited to be on a panel for 'Religious role models living in a secular world'. It was a fantastic day, with great conversations. I also loved meeting Reuben Brand - he is pretty hilarious.
