My apologies to you all, I noted that our computer here had stopped working and we needed to restart. Apologies for that. I (Christy) simply made an acknowledgement of country - which I encourage you all to think about doing on whichever land you are on - and welcomed Dr Anne Pattel-Gray to be with us here tonight - apologies again for the last minute technological issues.
We are recording this :)
Hi Vicky, Christys mike’s not working
Are you able to elaborate more on what it means to decolonialise Scripture?
Anne, thank you very much. I see the Statement from the Heart as a great gift to the ccountry. From where you stand at the moment, what do you think will move the country along to the point where we are fit to receive that gift?
What guarantee do we have that any treaty will be honoured better than other First Nations treaties have NOT worked for hundreds of years?
Do you want to tantalise us with an example of decolonialising Westernised Christianity?
Thank you, Anne, for speaking to us so frankly, and for me having the chance getting to know you even only through ZOOM. Through my links with Kaurna People in the past, and as a theologian myself, I have understood that many Aboriginal people gain their spiritual strength from the Country to which they, and their Language, belong. Many "read Country", i.e. looking around them, or "down" at Country. Whitefella European Christians expect salvation from "heaven" -- mentally, we look into the heavens. How do we bridge these gaps, not least in creating a Christian faith tradition rooting in Australia?
What resources can Anne suggest to help us decolonialise our theology?
Hard to hear the questions online.
Dean asked about the original letters patent for South Australia and their meaning for South Australia today in our relationships between first and second peoples.

At Mt Eliza Uniting Church, Victoria we would love to partner in hosting one of your sessions. We are on a journey with a marvellous Willum Warrain Aboriginal Association on the Peninsula which is remaking relationships in the context of Treaty and truth telling in Victoria.
