“The situation in Syria is getting worse day by day – with more than 5 million children suffering. It is also the world's foremost terrorist training ground. We need to understand why,” FamilyVoice WA officer David Lowe said today.
“We’ve invited two experts to speak on Australia, Syria, Sharia at the Perth Town Hall on 4 April Friday evening. We need to ask, could what is happening in Syria affect Australia?” Mr Lowe said.
Barnabas Fund international director and world authority on Islam Dr Patrick Sookhdeo will bring a focus on victims of violence, and Dr David Seccombe will present Islamic ideology as one of several threats in dismantling Australian law and values.
“We want to encourage a compassionate response to this tragedy, and a greater appreciation of the freedoms we share in our nation,” David Lowe said.
“All donations collected on the night will go to a Barnabas Fund project to help Syrian children caught up in the crisis.”
The early-bird ticket price ($20) has been extended a week to 21 March – only through phone or email bookings. Web bookings will be $25.
With every booking you will receive an introductory subscription to award-winning FamilyVoice magazines VoxPoint and VoxLink and a subscription to Barnabas Aid with a free book The Way Ahead. Light refreshments will be served.
