Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Justice Spokesperson, Brooke Prentis, and team member, Tanya Riches, recently caught up with Dave from PEACEcast - the new podcast by the PEACEtalks team at Paddington Anglican in Sydney - for a good chat about all things Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander justice and January 26 - including THAT lamb ad!
... It was a moment of honesty between two Aussie men. One of them was me – a guy often accused of being a ‘tree-hugging-bleeding-heart-lefty’ (of the specific Jesus-freak variety). The other was a cashed-up tradie. The kind of guy that you expect to have Southern Cross tattoo.
January 2017. My family moved to Brisbane Australia four years ago, and this year, we plan to start the process of becoming Australian citizens... It is likely that I will need to understand what Australia Day is all about.
I am a white Australian. On one side of my family I have a convict grandfather who arrived in 1812 having poached a rabbit in England. He made quite a life for himself in the new Sydney colony and I have grown up spotting the buildings he built and owned in the early settlement. I am a beneficiary of his arrival.
Brooke Prentis brought a challenging and inspiring message at Surrender Conference this year on the 2016 conference theme of what it means to love God, our neighbours and our enemies in Australia in 2016.
