Work towards Reconciliation is an important manifestation of mission. ABM seeks to build platforms for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglicans to speak prophetically to the wider church. By listening to what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are saying to the church today we have a chance to discern the call of God from the margins. That’s why we carry statements from leaders like National Aboriginal Bishop, Chris McLeod, who pointed to systemic racism in our own society in his Black Lives Matter! statement. Nearly 2000 people subsequently watched the 30 minute video where Bishop Chris explained what he saw as the key challenges for Australian Anglicans around Reconciliation.
Your support for this project helps ABM to amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Anglican leaders in the church and more broadly. It supports the study guides, videos, retreats, conferences and work towards responding to the calls of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, especially the calls made in the Statement from the Heart at Uluru in 2017.
