Australian "Sorry" comes to London

I've an old frind called Bond, initial J.
His phone number was 701 007.

It's all true, and he's speaking in London on Tuesday 15 May. But it's not about Her Majesty's Secret Service. It's about something much more radical.

John was one of those who launched the National Sorry Day campaign in Australia. This sought to repaid the damage from the "Stolen Generation" - remember the film Rabbit-Proof Fence? This year the new Prime Minister apologised publicly on behalf of all Australians for the pain caused to so many.

A fascinating chance to to explore what it has meant for one person to relate his faith to a challenging aspect of national culture. You'll need to book; e-mail reception@london.iofc.org as places are limited.

24 Greencoat Place (where moot meets on one Wednesday each month); light refreshments from 18:30. See you there.
