    Timothy Radcliffe on the conversations Catholics need to have

    06/09/2018 Duração: 20min

    What does it take to grow in conversation, even in and perhaps especially difficult conversation? Can contemporary Christianity get past the moralism and step into areas of pain? In this final episode for the second season, Fr Timothy Radcliffe talks to 'Australian Catholics' magazine editor, Michael McVeigh. They discuss questions about Catholic identity, education and democracy. Timothy Radcliffe is a Dominican friar and theologian. He is a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. He was director of Las Casas Institute for Social Justice at Oxford, where he is now on the advisory board. Timothy is known for his views on things like homosexuality, divorce and remarriage, and the authority of women in the Catholic Church – areas in which he has pushed for open conversation and an embrace of difference – something which has earned him the description of being controversial.

    Restoring women in the Catholic Church

    28/06/2018 Duração: 24min

    Although women have been sidelined from power structures within the Catholic Church, history is replete with their examples of service and leadership. So why aren't these women as familiar to us as other workers in the early church and since? And what standards do they set? Eureka Street editor Tim Kroenert introduces a special episode, in which ChatterSquare host Fatima Measham addresses these questions. Recorded at a pub in inner city Melbourne, she talks to members of a Catholic community about why women are critical to the future of the Church. With thanks to St Carthages, Parkville.

  • Sally Douglas on Jesus as female divine

    Sally Douglas on Jesus as female divine

    17/05/2018 Duração: 36min

    Wisdom had distinct cultural value in the ancient world. In Hebrew traditions and in the Old Testament, the personification of wisdom was always that of a woman, known as Sophia. This carried to early Christian texts in which Jesus was held as female divine - before this image was suppressed. Rev Dr Sally Douglas is a Uniting Church minister. Her doctoral research led to a book titled 'Early Church Understandings of Jesus as the Female Divine: The Scandal of the Scandal of Particularity'. In this episode, she talks about the qualities that made Jesus compatible with Woman Wisdom, and what made this image so potent for both believers and detractors. What are the implications of reviving the idea of a feminine Jesus? Theme: Aces High by Kevin MacLeod incompetech.com under CCBYA 3.0 licence.

In this episode we talk to Dr Cristy Clark, whose research on water rights in places like Manila, Michigan and Soweto, shows the effects of a distorted view of water. What leads to these distortions?

    21/03/2018 Duração: 24min

In this episode, we talk to former Victorian children's commissioner Bernie Geary. Bernie's entire career has been focused on assisting vulnerable young people and their families. He was the first outreach youth worker in Victoria, working in West Heidelberg more than four decades ago.

    06/02/2018 Duração: 38min

    06/12/2017 Duração: 25min

    Every generation brings the past into the present as it reckons with issues of identity and belonging. The role of symbols becomes critical, and in Australia perhaps no symbol has had more claimants than the Southern Cross. Dr Anne Beggs-Sunter is a historian and academic specialising in the history of Ballarat. She takes us through the 1854 miners' rebellion on the Victorian goldfields, where the Eureka flag was first raised. What do people miss about this story? Can the Eureka Stockade be retold in an inclusive way? Is it time to reclaim the Southern Cross from far-right supremacists?

    Jack Latimore on Black Lives Matter, activism and solidarity

    22/11/2017 Duração: 36min

    What does solidarity look like in a fractured time? Should we distinguish between activism and organising? Is there a place for allies? Jack Latimore hosted Black Lives Matter leaders in Melbourne, where mutual lessons emerged from encounters with Indigenous leaders and communities of colour. Jack is a Goori journalist and researcher, who is invested in the full participation of all people in political and cultural decision-making. In this episode, he reflects on the Black Lives Matter model, some of the positive things taking shape in Australia, and the work that still needs to be done. 'We need to get smart about the work we want to do, or the endpoint that we desire,' he says. He highlights 'the obligation to listen to other voices'.

ChatterSquare catches up with Benjamin Oh as the marriage law postal survey in Australia closes. Ben is co-chair of Equal Voices, a national LGBTI-affirming ecumenical organisation. In this episode, he talks about what it is like to be gay, Catholic and Asian-Australian. What are the things that have helped him deal with homophobia? How does his faith sit with his sexuality?

Ben also talks about the ways in which his Chinese Malaysian family has embraced his partner, and grounds for hope. Music: Aces High by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)licensed under CCBYA 3.0.

  • Eureka Street presents: Dissent Within

    Eureka Street presents: Dissent Within

    18/10/2017 Duração: 01h02min

    How are we to engage with views that we disagree with – when they are held by groups that we are part of or that are part of us? In this special episode of ChatterSquare, we present 'Dissent Within', the Eureka Street panel at the 2017 Melbourne Writers Festival. Dr Naama Carlin and Angus McLeay talk about their encounters with people who challenged their long-held assumptions, and the distance required to see one's privilege clearly. Naama is an Israeli-Australian academic who is against the Occupation of Palestinian territories. Angus is an Anglican minister from an evangelical background who supports same-sex marriage. Both have found that the basic tenets of faith can reconcile tensions between loyalty and integrity, but also offer ways forward. This event was chaired by Eureka Street editor Tim Kroenert, with thanks to the Melbourne Writers Festival for the recording.
