I again attended Prahran Mission’s Winter Breakfast program launch. Not quite as slick as the Salvos appeal launch which I attended a few weeks back, but I don’t think Prahran Mission uses pre-prepared templates for their speeches (…oops, should I say things like that?).
The main speaker was Minister Martin Foley, and inevitably his speech had some “political” content, but it wasn’t too bad. There were two separate “acknowledgements to Traditional Owners”, but no Grace. Come on, Uniting Church, political correctness is one thing, but where are your basic beliefs?
