The Beeds are joint authors with topics decided through shared study, prayer and discussion. Clive leads this work further with literature searches, library borrowing, reading and wide-ranging research. As he develops the first draft, Cara is more deeply involved in writing, discussion of ideas, reading specific texts and editing. All efforts are underpinned by continuing prayer and Bible study.
Their searches led them through a full gamut of political and religious parameters, during which they observed the reduction of personal autonomy amongst members of many groups. Their Christian faith developed strongly, finding God's leading strengthened their tolerance of others seeking the truth to serve humanity.
Married in 1961, they have a married son, a married daughter and two grandsons. Searching for personal faith on which to base their values, ethics, family life, careers and writing, they combined elements of their families' highly developed social, political, and spiritual consciousness with their education and strengthening Christian faith. In Catholic Social & Evangelical Thought, they found inspiration and direction back to the Bible, the Word and prayer.
Cara and Clive worship in St. Peter's Anglican Church, Box Hill, Melbourne and enjoy family, friends and community life.
Clive’s recent illness, through 2015-16, has kept both Cara and Clive from their writing. Their prayers seem answered, for as Clive’s health strengthens, they are resuming their work. Clive is again reading and writing and Cara is back to writing about their challenging search for ethics to guide their lives and their ultimate discovery and commitment to faith in the Lord Jesus.
