The last Old Ambo Long Table Dinner had not only the usual one to one conversation exchanges over the great food we shared, but a number of announcements and entertaining contributions are shared across the long table.   Surrounded by the colours of the Loud and Clear exhibition (on the walls of the Old  Ambo for a whole month and introduced to us by John) people shared their various creations Matt presented his mum’s cook book. Matt’s enthusiasm was appreciated by Robyn, the author and by a number of us who purchased some copies. Glenda, the beautiful host of the evening gifted us with her great singing and Jenny added to it with quite a bit of involvement from the audience. Judith presenting her brooches.  Come and join us on the 16th of every month, you might have a song, a brooch, a painting, a book or something altogether different to share as well.

Growing a Wisdom Ecology: Talk, Mingle & Drinks, Thursday 11 April 6.00pm – 8.00pm

Growing a Wisdom Ecology: Talk, Mingle & Drinks, Thursday 11 April 6.00pm – 8.00pm

GROWING A WISDOM ECOLOGY There is joke by Groucho Marx that goes like this - ‘time wounds all heels’. If you go into the meaning of that you have an example of wisdom. What it is saying is that persons, and societies for that matter, who follow their ruthless self-interests without any concern for other living things or the natural world eventually lose their way in the world. They may of course be materially successful for a time, especially for a small minority of people, but in due course the chickens of ignorance will come home to roost and we will more often experience the kind of chaotic societies that we are now developing.   Peter Wertheim’s talk will reflect on the wisdom of our actions. This talk and event is sponsored by ComLink. About Peter Wertheim Peter was formerly a lecturer in political and social philosophy at the University of Queensland in the 1960s and 1970s. He later went on to study cross-cultural and spiritual traditions. Approaching ninety years of age, his reflections on the world are both entertaining and enlightening. About Comlink ComLink is a for purpose (not-for-profit) organisation which provides transport and care services across Queensland. Its staff and volunteers are united by a shared vision, Leading the Care Revolution. Join us for this lively talk and ensuing discussion. Date: Thursday 11 April, 5.30pm for 6.00-7.00pm talk, 7.00-8.00pm mingle and drinks Venue: Main Gallery Space, and Black Box Theatre, the Old Ambulance Station, 80 Howard Street, Nambour Cost: No cost, this is a free event, however registration is required for catering considerations.
