Seminar Series:
Introduction to the year 2007 program


Our brochure for 2007 provides information on each of the forthcoming seminars, and once again includes a range of speakers and topics that will be of interest.

In 2007, St Peter's, Eastern Hill is celebrating its 160th year, while the Institute for Spiritual Studies moves into its 24th. We are happy to do our best to address some of the spiritual needs and searching of a broad-ranging ecumenical constituency, and we hope that our central city location is a positive encouragement. By the time of the first seminar in 2007, the St Peter's parish hall will have had a thorough-going refurbishment, something else to look forward to with anticipation.

As ever, our warm thanks go to Dr Jan Gordon-Clark, the tireless Chairman of this organisation, and to the wider ISS team.

With every good wish,

Rev'd Dr John Davis
Vicar of St Peter's, Melbourne
Director of the Institute for Spiritual Studies
