Well done Oz!

I had such a great time in Darwin. Couldn't have been better. I met so many fantastic people and the conference Educating for Tough Times was inspiring. I have never seen so many palm trees in a city and it was wonderful to see some big crocs in their natural habitat. More than 1,000 people from all over the world attended and the conference was very well-organised and enjoyable. Congratulations Australia! We may have the ashes for a few months but you have the prophetic voice.

Off to Australia

Next week I am off to Darwin in Australia where I will be delivering an academic paper on storytelling and a popular presentation entitled James Bond, Rat worship and Postmodernism: Subversive Questions for Christian Educators.

The conference is called Educating for Tough Times. There will be more than 1000 people attending.

Here is my take on how Bond would answer the five big faith questions. Bond is a great way to get young people thinking about faith.
