The stylised rendering
of the Southern Cross is an adaptation of the original symbol of
the Australian Church founded by the Rev. Dr. Charles Strong to
operate under the Southern Cross.
In July 2020 the International Society of Biblical Literature will be held at the University of Adelaide and promoted by the Strong Trust. For information call Norman Habel, firstname.lastname@example.org
A Strong Pacifism Conference - 2018
This conference is being planned by the Trust and will probably be held in November 2018, 100 years after the original Armistice Day when Strong delivered his famous Armistice Day speech. A special volume recognising Strong's role as a pioneer pacifist in Australia will also be released. Any interested in participating in the project please contact Norman Habel, email@example.com
The papers from the 2015 International Conference on ecology and religion held at the Serafino Winery in Mclaren Vale are now available in a publication entitled: The Nature of Things: Rediscovering the Spiritual in God's Creation. The publisher is Wipf & Stock.
Award for Basil Moore
At the 2013 AASR Conference in Adelaide,
Dr Basil Moore was given the Charles Strong Trust Award for his contributions to
the study of religion and religions in Australia.
In addition, his historic paper of 1971
was reprinted and made available. This paper on Black Theology was a major factor
in the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and led to Basil Moore being house
arrested. The paper is included among the publications on this website.
