Credo Community legend Emma Groves receives her premiership medallion from Rob Butters (St Kilda Footy Club President) after having kicked a goal for the “Hearters” (Sacred Heart Mission) in their final. Whilst Urban Seed has never been big enough to field a team, the Reclink Footy Grand Final Day is a great event for so many people and an important cultural event in the calanders of many welfare organisations around Melbourne. It was great catching up with so many Credo people…
In my modern rewrite of the gospel called “The Gospel of Vic” I used the tradition of footy as a contested religious idea and a metaphor of true community…..It’s days like this that inspire it! More pics below….
