Sydney is fab

For those interested I had a great trip to Sydney and Canberra where I delivered RealityBites lectures and workshops to about 450 Christian teachers; I also spoke to about 200 young people in several Oz schools. Feedback has been really encouraging. One headmaster wrote to me as follows:

Dear Mark

RB goes to Oz again

Today I am flying out to Sydney and will be speaking at two conferences organised by Christian Education National in New South Wales and also in Canberra. The one near Sydney will be attended by about 500 Christian teachers and I will be talking about my approach to storytelling and the calling of the Christian educator.

There are no crocodiles in this part of Oz which is a shame.

It's a great honour to be asked back to Australia and I hope RB will be a blessing to them 'downunder'.

Well done Oz!

I had such a great time in Darwin. Couldn't have been better. I met so many fantastic people and the conference Educating for Tough Times was inspiring. I have never seen so many palm trees in a city and it was wonderful to see some big crocs in their natural habitat. More than 1,000 people from all over the world attended and the conference was very well-organised and enjoyable. Congratulations Australia! We may have the ashes for a few months but you have the prophetic voice.
