Mike’s introduction to this topic. He begins with demographer Charles Price’s comments on the concept of ethnicity. He summarises Yamamori’s application of ‘ethnic consciousness’ to church outreach. Also considered are the fluidity of ethnic identity, its distinction from birthplace, culture and nationality, and the speed at which Australia is moving away from being an Anglo-Celtic nation. Building on the work of Harvey Conn, Mike presents a pyramid involving differing types of ethnicity.
