Common Grace Digital Seminars are designed for people who want to listen to stories of injustice and be equipped to bring about change.
A Christian Approach to January 26 was a free and ticketed Common Grace Digital Seminar.
January 26 or #Jan26 is a date that divides these lands now called Australia. January 26 is also known as the Day of Mourning, Invasion Day, Survival Day, Sovereignty Day. The Common Grace movement is committed to acknowledging this day in mourning, lament, and shared pain, and to grow in understanding by listening to Aboriginal Christian Leaders, remembering our past, participating in national truth-telling, and seeking a shared future together.
If you have ever asked, "But what do I do with January 26 as a Christian?" then this is the seminar for you.
Presented by Common Grace CEO Brooke Prentis, an Aboriginal Christian Leader, and descendant of the Waka Waka peoples, this seminar is an incredible opportunity for you to hear what January 26 represents for Aboriginal peoples and to hear the call to walk and work together in friendship.
Don’t miss this incredible opportunity for deep listening.
