By contrast, Gospel values of mutuality and well-being raise critical questions about choices for all Kiwis in the September 23rd election.  Join us at 7.30pm for 75 minutes, $15 waged $10 unwaged.  Please sign the list at reception.

7.  LITTLE LIBRARY.  Parish Council has approved in principle St Luke’s being part of the ‘Little Library’ movement.  You may have noticed that in various parts of Auckland, and outside some churches, there are these little community libraries that border the footpath.  Those who live nearby, or are simply passing by, can take a free book home to read.  Others may like to add a book to the little library.  The purpose is both to encourage reading and to offer a free community service to our neighbourhood.  The set up costs are minimal, and various companies have provided building materials free of charge.  We now need to work with the organisers of the movement, John and Yvonne, to design a ‘little library’ that would look good in front of St Luke’s.  If you are interested in being part of this design phase, please contact Glynn

8.  SEA OF FAITH, Sunday 20th August from 4pm.  Guest speaker Peter Harrison on “Raising Robots, a pedagogical approach to teaching values to artificially intelligent agents”.  Peter say robots are commonly seen as tools or slaves for humans to use.  But it’s more helpful to see them as children capable of learning the way we do.  Peter’s speciality is building software systems to automate business processes.  Tea & coffee from 4pm with the lecture and discussion about 4.35pm.
