Oct 1: "Reflections of Two Wanderers - Religion and Cultural Politics in Southeast Asia"

Services - October 2017 » Oct 1: "Reflections of Two Wanderers - Religion and Cultural Politics in Southeast Asia"

Richard & Susan Weatherston - Service Leader Allan McKeown

We welcome former Fellowship members, Susan and Richard, to share their experiences and impressions of the various religions and cultures they encountered while travelling through S.E. Asia last year.

While sharing colourful and exquisite photos of Burma, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Japan, Richard and Susan will contrast how these varied cultures are maintaining their religion with positive and negative consequences in the face of rapid modernization and pressure towards ethnic and gender equality.

Richard and Susan have always been fascinated with Asia and now retired, they spend four months a year travelling in developing countries.
