Following last Thursday's website posting about The Australian Fires, we were contacted by Mike Naylor, the Faith producer at BBC 3 Counties radio, We put him in touch with Judith Purling, wife of our former Australian minister Rev. David Purling, who wrote the website piece. Judith, in turn, put Mike in touch with her friend, the President of the Uniting Church in Australia, Dr Deidre Palmer. Dr Palmer's interview was broadcast yesterday (Sunday) morning, January 12th during the 6-9am Faith programme with Nana Akua.
In the broadcast, Dr Palmer spoke of the work of the Uniting Church with trained volunteer disaster recovery chaplains, the encouraging global sense of support and the need to address long term issues of climate change.
