We dream of a future where our nation listens deeply to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the truth of our history, where injustices are righted and the oldest continuous cultures in the world are celebrated. This is a future where all the broken things are restored and reconciled to and through Jesus. A future where all people and all creation can flourish.
What does biblical justice look like? Biblical justice emphasises the need to foster communities, cultures and systems that allows all people, particularly those that are poor, marginalised and oppressed, to enjoy the goodness and abundance of God’s creation.
At the centre of what justice means in an Australian context is truth-telling about our history and therefore Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christian leaders are fundamental to the work of Common Grace.
