The Shepparton Interfaith Network would like to invite you to: “Is ‘Just War’ Relevant Today?”
Date: Wednesday, 15 April 2015         Time: 7:30pm
Location: Harder Auditorium, GOTAFE, Fryer St, Shepparton
In commemoration of the Anzac Centenary 1915-2015, the Shepparton Interfaith Network will conduct a Public Forum. The term “Just War” properly applies to both the moral tradition on war, its justification and its limitations that have developed historically within Western Culture as a whole and to the Christian component of this larger tradition. The question may well be asked, “Is the Just War tradition relevant today?” Responses to such a question might consider the Gallipoli and ANZAC context and stretch to include the context Australia finds itself in, today. The forum will be seeking responses to this presentation and having a Question and Answer Forum. As Australia today is both a multicultural and multifaith nation, we will be inviting religious leaders from other traditions to join in responses to the presentation.
More information: Chris Parnell, 5821 3483, Secretary, Shepparton Interfaith Network. Free – a light supper will be served.
