Reconciliation Week

This week is Reconciliation Week. It coincides with the 20th anniversary of the ‘Bringing Them Home Stolen Generation’ report; 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders were counted as Australian Citizens, and 25th anniversary of the High Court Mabo case which declared Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders the Traditional Owners of the land.

As Christians who know the reconciliation of God in Jesus, let’s have the humility and compassion to listen to the experiences of Indigenous Australians, pray for true reconciliation through Jesus in our country, and share Jesus –the greatest gift we have.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
