Everyone is invited to this special afternoon event organised by the Toowoomba TEAR Group (Beck Hargreaves, a member of St Bart's and from our Social Transformation Team is one of the organisers). The event is free and there is a children's program running concurrently (using TEAR's resources for children). Greg Hewson will be exploring the topic, Fear of the Other. Do people universally have a fear of others who are different - refugees, mentally ill, Indigenous etc.? Also hear how TEAR projects address these issues in other countries! Greg Hewson, and his wife, Elvira have worked in Melbourne with Urban Seed and now live in Cudgee in South West Victoria with their children. They enjoy exploring a permaculture, sustainability, faith and community thing and have been involved in the work of Manna Gum. Greg Hewson has worked with TEAR for many years and served as the Victorian State Coordinator before taking up the national role of State Team Co-ordinator for TEAR Australia.
