Faith in action
Let us together speak up for grace and compassion to be shown to those in our community who are being coerced by our government to return to danger on Manus and Nauru.Send an email
We must NEVER forget International Refugee Law was written in response to the world saying "Nope, nope, nope" to European Jews. As Heschel reminds us, "Indifference to evil is more insidious than evil itself." Let's pray our nation will not be numb to the cries of the "the least of these". May our hearts respond to God -camouflaged as the vulnerable- with, "Yes, yes, yes."
Jarrod McKenna from First Home Project chatted with Common Grace in light of news the Government is withdrawing support from 100 people seeking asylum settled in Australia.
Timothy McCloud remembers being a Christian in the #LetThemStay actions last year, and shares why its paramount that Christians speak up again for justice to those being coerced back to Nauru and Manus.
The recent death of a man on Manus Island who had sought asylum in Australia, points to the unacceptable mistreatment of all people who are turned away from our shores.
This Refugee Week, let us reflect on the practical actions we can take in our own lives to welcome those in our midst, and offshore, who are seeking shelter and support in our peaceful and prosperous nation.
