Embracing the discipleship journey

Hello! I’m really pleased to be the new cross-platform editor here at Journey.

The ‘cross-platform’ bit of my job title is new, and represents that while the print edition of Journey will always be an important part of how we operate, digital and social media are becoming an increasingly important aspect of our media landscape.

That’s why over the next month you will notice video and audio content start to appear on JourneyOnline, as well as expanded versions of some of the stories you see printed here. It’s all fairly simple right now, but I look forward to continuing to innovate in future, and hearing your constructive feedback!

This month we’ve got news from the 30th Synod (page 10) including an expanded section about Uniting Green’s Q&A about the impacts of mining on communities and the environment (page 12) .

We also have a chat to the Central Queensland Presbytery Mining Impact Task Group convenor Rev Dr David Ferguson, who was on the panel for that event (page 9).

We’re talking to refugee advocates and their clients (page 6) in time for Refugee Week (16–22 June), and the tail end of National Reconciliation Week also falls within June (27 May–3 June), so the Chairperson of the United Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress National Council of Elders, Pastor Bill Hollingsworth is giving us his thoughts on the reconciliation process.

It is a privilege to be working in the Uniting Communications office with such a great team of people.

I look forward to all the stories we will bring in the months and years to come!

Rohan Salmond, Cross-platform editor.
