Common Grace – Treaty & Truth Telling for Healing Country
Treaty & Truth Telling for Healing Country – a prayer, a cry for justice, an invitation to action – join in for healing country. Bring your hands, feet, mind, heart. Bring your listening, your learning, your love.
You are invited to participate in National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June) and NAIDOC Week (4 July – 11 July). Throughout these seven weeks we invite you on the journey of being led by our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Christian Leaders to join in for healing country, through Treaty and Truth Telling.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been calling for Treaty for decades and have been waiting on the unfulfilled promise for Treaty since 1988 when Prime Minister Bob Hawke promised a Treaty after receiving the Barunga Statement. We’ve been singing with Yothu Yindi about this broken promise since 1991! In the 2017 Statement from the Heart, the request for Treaty was made again (read further).
