Volunteers Needed for ANU/Dell Recycling Day

ANUgreen will be running a joint recycling initiative with Dell to collect and recycle computers across Canberra on 17 October. The event will be held in the carpark across from Old Canberra House on the ANU campus. In previous years this event has drawn a huge crowd and provides a valuable service to the Canberra community.

We need 24 volunteers for half day shifts (or 12 volunteers for full day shifts) to assist with the recycling procedure. Volunteers are required to assist with crowd control, information and ensuring an efficient process which allows people dropping of computers to come in and out quickly. There is no lifting or packing of computers required.

Volunteers will be provided with a Dell sleeveless jacket and food/drink on the day. ANUgreen will also provide volunteers with a voucher for a free coffee and lunch at God’s café.

Please contact Barry Hughes at ANUgreen ( if you are able to volunteer for one or both shifts (8.00am to 12.30pm and/or 11.30am to 4.00pm).

Important Lessons from the Bible

Why Jesus came:
"that the world might be saved through him"
John 3:17

Who Jesus is going to use to save the world:
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God."
Romans 8:19

Our role on earth:
"The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it."
Genesis 2:15

The Five Pillars of A Christian Theology of Sustainability

1. God is the creator, sustainer and redeemer of creation.

2. Covenantal Stewardship (we have a covenant with God as stewards of the earth).

3. The creation-fall-redemption paradigm (God made a good world; human failure broke the relationships between god, man and creation; Christ provides hope for all creation).

4.Bodily resurrection(we will rise with bodies, not as spirits)

5.New Creation (a new Heaven and new Earth refers to a renewal and an earthing of heaven, not starting over).
