Easy on the differences


I had to describe myself for a group that prides itself on open-mindedness, and which wanted to hear from a representative of mainstream Christianity… A strange thing emerged as I did:

Geoff Westlake works for OAC Ministries, a non-denominational outreach organisation educating people about the basics of Christianity. He’s a Baptist reverend, married to an Anglican-Uniting girl, sends his kids to Catholic schools, yet doesn’t regularly attend a normal church. Instead he voluntarily runs Cheers Neighbors’ Network in Banksia Grove under the auspices of Scripture Union WA. He is in good standing with the Nyoongar-Whadjuk people, and assists Together for Humanity when they are in town.

Having important differences doesn’t mean we can’t work together!
