Rosie Clare Shorter reflects on Rebecca Huntley’s new book 'How to Talk About Climate Change in a Way That Makes a Difference', encouraging us to turn our concern and anxiety about climate change into action.
Happy Easter to all of you - the Common Grace movement. May you find time and space for family and friends and Jesus, in person or online, this Easter Sunday.
Today I have the humbling privilege to be part of the Channel 9 broadcast of Wesley Mission's Easter Sunday Service televised on Channel 9 at 6am local time today. I bring this message to the nation as part of the broadcast and to each of you today.
As the Leader of a movement of tens of thousands pursuing Jesus and Justice, and as an Aboriginal Christian Leader, it is a humbling privilege to say to each of you – Happy Easter.
The darkness is real for so many people in these lands now called Australia – the weary and the sick, and those living inequality and injustice each and every day.
Together, as all peoples, of all cultures, we live through a global pandemic, a global climate crisis, and global racism.
Into this darkness comes Easter Sunday, and, the light and love of Jesus.
My prayer for you this Easter is to see the light. The light in the dawning of the new day, the light in every human being and all of creation, and the light in the miracle of the resurrected and living Jesus.
May that light, through sharing love and compassion, bring hope and peace, to all this Easter.
God bless you.
This Message was part of Wesley Mission's Easter Sunrise Service which was simulcast on Hope 103.2 and broadcast on Channel Nine and included an interview with Danny and Leila Abdallah, music from CityAlight and messages from Christian and political leaders. You can see the full service here.
