You are invited by one of Australia’s most senior Aboriginal Christian Leaders, Aunty Jean Phillips, to gather together to pray in unison on the evening before January 26. During a moment of national significance, answer the call to prayer to #ChangeTheHeart of this nation.
While there are mixed feelings across the country around "Australia Day", we as Christians have an opportunity to stand with Aunty Jean Phillips to acknowledge the true history of our nation, to lament the present day disadvantages and injustices facing our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters, and to pray for a nation built on truth, justice, love and hope.
January 26th is a difficult time. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are feeling many emotions and are hurting, grieving, mourning, and commemorating survival, on this day. That’s why gathering together to listen and learn and pray for our nation is so important.
As we dream of Reconciliation in our lifetime we know change comes through prayer, through deep friendship and through faithful commitment so we invite you to answer the call of Aunty Jean Philips, to stand in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and to commit to tuning in together the night before January 26th.
