Jesus confronted so-called ‘unholy’ and ‘unclean’ spirits that can twist the human heart and crowd out what is good and spacious in life. Jesus challenged the old ways and was accused of blasphemy.

We honour the memory and achievements of Eddie Koiki Mabo

Today, 3 June, is Mabo Day and we honour the memory and achievements of the great Australian and Torres Strait Islander Eddie Koiki Mabo. It is because of Eddie Mabo's commitment to justice and land rights that the Australian legal system finally reversed the myth of "Terra Nullius" or land belonging to no-one. This myth was first instigated by Captain Cook as a way of claiming the land now known as Australia for the benefit of Great Britain. Thank you Eddie Mabo for speaking truth to power.
