Junk Food Koalas?

These beautiful drawings are by Sydney designer Adam France.

We rarely stop and think. But if we start reflecting on cute creatures like koalas, and we ponder the fact that they hardly need anything to survive, just food trees and connections with each other, then our consumption as a species starts to look ridiculous. As ridiculous as koalas eating junk food.

We humans live and eat and consume way beyond what we need. And we mess with everything else’s ability to live in the process.

    One might suggest that you sluohd teach at Barker, purely to give back to the school that gave you so much.But that would be totally lame Instead, I think you have a responsibility as a Christian to consider which has the greatest need public or private education? Are you considering which has a shortage of teachers, or which has a particular need of teachers in an area of Sydney/NSW? These are massive questions, and not to be taken lightly.
