Love and Resilience

Reverend Graham Long, Pastor and CEO Emeritus of the Wayside Chapel in Sydney, is someone whose life is woven into the community fabric of Sydney. Reverend Long shares the story of his path to understanding resilience, from a personal tragedy to the enduring support he found in the vulnerable, homeless, and lost people who come to the Wayside. He underlines that love is everywhere to be found and that resilience is not deposited in you but is for you if you want it.

This talk is part of the Sydney MAD Monday event on Indigenous Foodways, 16 April 2018. Sydney MAD Mondays is a collaboration between Carriageworks, MAD, and Kylie Kwong, and brings together voices from across the Australian food community for talks on the role today’s restaurants play in taking care of the environment.
