One of the differences between Australia and New Zealand that has fascinated me over the years is the vastly different ways in which they have addressed the issues of the rights of indigenous peoples. Australians, particularly within the evangelical church, just seem to ignore the issue.
Not any more.
Dr Peter Adam (Principal, Ridley College in Melbourne; a favourite author of mine on the subject of preaching and pretty conservative theologically) has just given a most remarkable lecture with the title "Australia - whose land?"
The Sydney Morning Herald has picked up on the lecture and there is a similar story in The Age from Melbourne.
WOW - this one is going to cause a stir. They'll be talking about it for years.
Good on him!
