Hello, I'm Matt!
I’m a theology student at Pilgrim Theological college, part of the University of Divinity in Melbourne, Australia. I have a keen passion for the preached Word, and theological reflection that resources public theology. I also help manage a church-based social enterprise café.
About the Blog...
This blog is a place to record what I’m learning. Whether my sermons, reflections on life and study, or contributions to my formal study - I’m currently working on a short thesis on Schleiermacher. I try to connect my theological reflections to the issues facing myself, my church (the Uniting Church in Australia), and the world.
This short piece is aimed at beginning some conversations around Voluntary Assisted Dying, which will become a legal right in Victoria, Australia in June 2019. The Uniting Church in Australia, particularly in Victoria and Tasmania, are in the process of developing a response, and is required to make decisions in response. Hopefully this will help to resource discussions in the lead up to those decisions.
