INF Australia has been hosting a series of free Living Faith webinars during 2020. These were planned well-before the coronavirus pandemic, but have proved to be an invaluable way – during lockdown – of sharing information and resources about contemporary issues of faith and life.
The most recent webinar, Compassion and Contagion, looked at impacts and responses to the coronavirus pandemic in Nepal, Australia and globally. Associate Professor Alison Morgan, of the Nossal Institute for Global Health, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at the University of Melbourne, shared about the transmission and health impacts of the new coronavirus, as well as the social and economic impacts of lockdowns. Alison and her partner lived and worked in Nepal, including serving at Tansen Hospital for a number of years. Krishna Adhikari, INF Nepal Executive Director, described the impacts and responses to the new coronavirus in Nepal, and highlighted the work undertaken by INF to prepare and respond, and the challenges they face.
Previously, INF Australia CEO, Ben Thurley, and INF’s new Climate Change Adaptation Officer, Sahara Mishra, shared on the topic, Climate Change for Christians. The webinar explored aspects of science, theology and community adaptation relating to climate change.
Future webinars are planned on the topics of:
- Raising Kids Who Care
- The First 1,000 Days – Saving Mothers and Children
Videos, presentations and other resources from these webinars are available for viewing and download at inf.org/webinars.
