9.  INTER-FAITH DISCUSSION.  On Sunday March 5th at 11am, there will be a discussion for anyone interested on our inter-faith activities at St Luke's.  Currently we have two pilgrimages.   The question is 'could we do more?' and 'what are other like-minded groups doing?'   In regard to the latter question Glynn has invited Jocelyn Armstrong from the Religious Diversity Trust to be present.

10.  “THE BOOK OF EVAN” brings together Evan Sherrard’s mostly unpublished writings in various fields of interest, together with contribution from some 40 people, including his family, who represent the breadth and depth of influence that Evan’s work and life had – and continues to have.  The book launch is being held on Tuesday 4 April from 5.30pm in The Foyer, AF Building, AUT North, 90 Akoranga Drive, Northcote.  Pay and display parking is available on campus.  RSVP by 27 March to  Evan’s book will be available for purchase at the special price of $40.
