Point Lonsdale, Australia
Having lived most of my life in and around Melbourne, I have also spent a few years in New Zealand where I was married and obtained a Masters degree in 1978 (University of Waikato). My academic field has been sociological theory. Over the years I have travelled to Korea, Japan, North America and to Europe but in recent times I have spent most of my days at the quiet sea-side village of Point Lonsdale at the entrance to Port Phillip Bay. This has given me the opportunity to reflect upon contemporary political debates, to advise students and find other ways to contribute to the world-wide renewal of the Christian way of life. When I am not studying, writing letters or advising students I find myself conversing with the many friendly people I meet along the nearby coast. In recent years I have become more aware of significant ancestors who left England to organise Methodism in the South Pacific. But by my time Christianity though tolerated was not a central part of that ancestral line having transformed itself into progressive liberalism and its cow-towing to secularism.
